|HARNEY PEAK LOOKOUT|
Started in 1911 with an alidade, a 12x12' log cabin was added just below the summit in 1919. Then in 1920 a 12x12' wooden cab was constructed on the summit, then enlarged to 16x16' the following year. The present 3-story stone and wood tower, built over two years (1939-1940), was last staffed in 1967. The lookout is on the highest point in South Dakota and is listed on the National Historic Lookout Register.
