R.I.P. 1916-?; 1926-?
First used with a cupola cabin in 1916, a 20' platform was added in 1922. Then an 81' steel tower was constructed in 1926. Used for emergencies into the 1960s, it has long since departed. The cupola cabin photo may or may not actually be from Mt. Emily, but this is how it was labeled in the Oregon State Archives. Known lookout personnel: 1950-1951: Avery Glenn; 1954: Wayne Smith; 1958: Lowell Park.
