Established with a camp in 1906, a 40' wooden tower with 7x7' cab, along with ground L-4 cab living quarters built in 1933, were replaced by the present 41' treated timber L-4 tower in 1953. Staffed with volunteers and listed on the National Historic Lookout Register, the site is located within the Bull Run Watershed and is closed to public entry.
