The Aermotor 100 foot X-Brace open steel tower with a 7x7 foot observation cab was constructed in 1937 as part of the overall project when establishing the Sacramento National Wildlife Refuge. The structure is described as a 'fire lookout tower' in several documents but was likely to have been used for wildlife observation as well, as was common at other refuges.
The site is noted as the "I-5 Lookout" in the 1986 Thornton survey, likely due to Interstate 5 that runs just west of the refuge.
