October 14, 1937: "Not satisfied with the height of mountain peaks on which lookout cabins are customarily placed, the forest service is now taking steps to place such stations in the Lewis and Clark national forest on 50-foot towers, it was revealed a few days ago. Raising the lookout cabins 50 feet, it was found, will in practically all cases enable the lookout to see fires near them as well as those some distance away. Main supports for the towers are four 50-foot logs, from 18 to 20 inches in diameter at the base and not less than 10 inches in diameter at the top. Inside the bracing which joins the log upright, winding stairways lead to the top, where the 14-foot square lookout cabin is mounted. Extending entirely around the outside of the cabin are 2-foot catwalks. Four towers have been completed or are nearing completion in the Lewis and Clark forest, all are in the little Belt mountains. One of these stations is located on Mount High." (Big Timber Pioneer)
