Description

Located in New York’s Catskill Forest Preserve, Tremper Mountain Fire Tower was constructed by the New York Department of Conservation (now DEC) in 1917. The 47’ steel Aermotor LS-40 tower with 7’x 7’ metal cab was in active service for 54 years until it closed in 1971. Like Overlook Mountain, it has also been restored by a joint effort of the Catskill Forest Center, the Highlands Group of FFLA and the NYS-DEC.
