With views north into Montreal Canada, east into the Green Mountains in Vermont and south into the high peaks of the Adirondacks, Lyon Mountain played an important role in spotting fires. This 35' Aermotor LS-40 tower was built in 1917. The fire tower was in use until the end of 1988 and was officially closed in 1989.
