Seven Point Lookout is the only remaining gable-roofed L-4 on a tower in the Northern Rockies Region, and has the distinction of being located on three national forests without being moved. It was built in 1930 by the U.S. Forest Service on what was then the Cabinet National Forest, later changed to the Kaniksu National Forest. In 1973 much of the Trout Creek Ranger District was transferred to the Cabinet Ranger District of Kootenai National Forest and the lookout was abandoned. Due to its remoteness, it was not heavily vandalized and restoration was undertaken in 1996 as a Passport in Time project.
