Located on a ridge near Millston, this lookout was constructed in the late 1930s. Oak Ridge is a 100-foot tall tower manufactured by the Aermotor Company featuring an internal corner leg ladder. Oak Ridge tower was staffed intermittently during spring fire season until 2015 when Wisconsin decommissioned its lookout network. One previous observer at this site was Russell Young.
