Fire towers in eastern Virginia were tall enough to see out over the flat landscape. The Prince George Forest Lookout is no exception. This 120’ Aermotor tower with 7’x7’ metal cab was constructed in l937 by the CCC for the Va. Dept of Forestry. Now inactive and one of the tallest remaining in the state, it is owned by Prince George County and maintained cooperatively by the Virginia Chapter of the FFLA.
