When the 100' International Derrick model Huxford fire tower with 7'x7' cab (1939) was declared surplus by AFC in 2006, Jerry Watson purchased, moved and carefully restored the structure as his own Longleaf Lookout Tower. It now stands in Butler as a historic complement to his own longleaf pine forest known as Georgiana.
