The first lookout on this site was a 50' wooden L-6 tower and cabin one mile west of the present tower. In 1932 a crow's nest was erected one mile east, which is still standing.
The present 107' treated timber L-4 tower, built in 1947, is staffed every summer and still uses the old phone system with radio backup. The lookout oversees the Black Canyon Wilderness and the east end of the Ochoco National Forest.
First tower in 1925
Current tower in 1955
