This is a 100ft tower.  I believe it was fabricated by the International Derrick Company but haven't been able to confirm this detail.  I can say with certainty that it is not an Aermotor tower.

According to the Bankhead USFS website , "The 1930 map shows the addition of a fire tower at Kinlock Knob and another east of Cheatham Road, the Central Tower."
