Bartlick Lookout, also known as Wildcat Tower by locals, was built in 1936 near Wildcat Hollow. It was a steel Aermotor tower purchased earlier that summer at a cost of $1,448. It and a lookout cabin were built at the site by CCC crews. Locals remember the tower having 114 steps to the top.
The former tower site is now private property. Concrete footers remain from the tower.
