Once there were 43 lookouts on the Ouachita National Forest in Arkansas, and today only six remain. Tall Peak Lookout is one of them. The 12’x12’ live-in wooden cab with catwalk atop a one-story stone base was constructed in 1938 by the CCC. Although inactive as a lookout for many years and extensively vandalized, the site is on the National Register of Historic Places.
