This 100' Aermotor steel tower was built as the first and only lookout on this summit in 1939. The site has been abandoned since 1952. Since that time, the accompanying ground cabin living quarters and the roof of the lookout tower have departed. Etched on the walls of the 7 x 7 foot cubical on top of the tower are numerous names and dates of the many visitors, from the 1940's through the present day.
