R.I.P. 1938-1963; 1963-1983
Developed with a 15' pole L-4 tower in 1938, a 20' treated timber R-6 flat replaced it in 1963. Vandalism plagued the tower, especially after it was abandoned in the late 1970's. It was sold in 1983 to a local farmer who used the legs to support a water tank and added the cab to his house.
