This standard 100' lookout tower was built for the Alabama Forestry Commission in the late 1940s. Looks in excellent shape as all steps are present, very little rust on frame. Cab has some windows missing. Did not have permission to climb it so could not check it out. Almost no vandalism since site is now private property.
