A lookout point with a telephone line was established in 1911, by July a structure had been built on the site. This building was replaced in 1915, likely by an original plan California 4A on a short tower. In 1934 a BC-301 cabin replaced the existing structure.
The structure was replaced again in 1986 and houses some microwave relays.
Mount Hough is regularly staffed for fire detection. Wayne Pease has spent 30 of his 50 years as a Lookout Observer at Mount Hough.
