The 60 foot steel tower with a 7'x7' cab is an Aermotor Company product erected by the State in 1930. The cab modification and catwalk addition occurred circa 1957. The house was constructed under the ECW program in 1935. The residence maybe based upon the Forest Service's BC-101 building plan. Though remodeled, it still reflects its CCC origin.
