Built in 1936, this Aermotor LS-40 steel tower with 7'x7' steel cab, formerly 100', reconstructed to 40' on the original concrete footings, was originally located near the town of Timmonsville in Florence County, SC. The tower was purchased from the SC Forestry Commission by Billy McIntosh in the late 1990s and moved to Sumter County, reconditioned, and re-erected on Mr. McIntosh's property. It is used as a hunting and wildlife observation spot.
