Minnesota’s second listing, Pequot Lookout Tower, was built by the CCC and MN-DNR Division of Forestry crews in 1934. At 100’ with a 7x7 cab, it is still valued as a detection site in the popular wooded lakes region of central Minnesota.
The tower is now the centerpiece of Paul M. Thiede Fire Tower Park, named after a former Crow Wing County commissioner who spearheaded preservation of the tower.
