The 14'x14' L-4 cab with catwalk was originally placed on a 50' pole tower in 1936. Monument Peak Lookout in the Lewis & Clark National Forest remained active until 1999 when it became unstable and the cab was placed on the ground for restoration. The lookout was rededicated in July 2005 and placed in the rental system as a ground facility.
