The first lookout, a log cabin, was established on North Twentymile Peak on the Okanogan National Forest in 1920. A D-6 cupola lookout was constructed in 1923. Now used for storage, it is one of only nine remaining of more than 200 that were built in the Northwest.
In 1947 a 30' timber tower with a 14' x 14' hip roof L-4 cab with catwalk was erected. Last staffed in 1988, it is now maintained as an emergency lookout.
