Located in the northern tip of the state, Magalloway Lookout went into service in 1910 using funds contributed by the NH Timberland Owners Association (NWOA affiliate). The current 37' steel tower with standard 10’x10' NH wood cab was constructed in 1935. It replaced the second of two wooden towers on the site, the last wood tower in the state. It is in active service.
