Baughman Mountain Lookout was put into service by the Douglas Forest Protective Association (Oregon) in 1925. The first tower was a crow's nest atop a Douglas-fir tree. In 1934 a 10' round timber, trestle type, tower with an L-4 cab was constructed. In 1953, a 50' treated timber tower with an Amort style cab was erected on a point about one and a half miles to the east. In 1979, the present 54' 6" steel tower with a 14'x14' flattop cab with catwalk was assembled from the recycled Shivigny Mountain lookout, which was dismantled in the fall 1978. The lookout is in active service.
