R.I.P. 1914-1930; 1940-?
Established in 1911 with an alidade on the summit and a log cabin in a meadow below the top, a log cabin was constructed atop the peak in 1914 along with a 10' platform. A 10' live-in tower followed in 1930, replaced by a 10' treated timber L-4 tower in 1940. Abandoned in 1966, it has since been removed.
