The state lookout at Peavine Mountain in southern Oregon came to life as a rag camp in 1920, serving until an L-4 on a 40’ pole tower was constructed in 1933. In 1961 the present 14’x14’ flattop cab on a 41’ treated timber tower was built. This tower was condemned and burned in November 2006. This lookout was destroyed in 2007.
