Ship Mountain, also known as Four Brothers #3, was originally part of the Siskiyou National Forest. A lookout may have been on Ship Mountain as early as 1914. Circa 1922 a timber tower with a Region 5 Plan 4AR cab design was erected. The structure was replace in the 1960's by a portable trailer lookout that was replaced by a new structure constructed in 2008.
Ship Mountain participated in the Aircraft Warning Service program during World War II as AWS Station 'Mike 8-1'.
