Over the years this location has had three lookouts: Borden Mountain, Tower Mountain, and Savoy Mountain. The first was a tree top station in 1913 built to supplement Mount Greylock. Then came a 45’ steel tower with an 8’x8’ cab. The present 68’ steel tower with a 10’x10’ wooden cab went into service in 1932. It is in the Savoy Mountain State Forest.
