Developed in 1934 with a 40' pole tower with L-4 cab, the present 41' treated tower with R-6 flat cab came from Davis Point Lookout in 1966, where it had been built in 1957. The windows have been modified to slant outward and reduce glare. Heavily visited by the public due to its proximity to Missoula, proposals have been made to establish an interpretive setting at the lookout. The tower is listed on the National Historic Lookout Register.
