The honor of listing #250, one quarter of the way to the goal of 1,000 registrations, goes to Flagg Mountain Lookout Tower on the Weogufka State Forest in Coosa County, Alabama. Built by the CCC in 1935, the 50’ stone tower is a unique structure. The walls are 2 to 3’ thick. Large timbers were laid in the rock in a criss-cross pattern and have been replaced with inlaid stone. The 12’x 12’ cab lookout was staffed by the Alabama Forestry Commission until 1989.
