I try to keep my fire lookout records as accurate as possible, so I would appreciate being notified if/when any more of the remaining 87 fire lookouts are no longer standing.**During aerial photography flights over the wintery North Cascades, John Scurlock and I have photographed a handful of lookouts, mostly in the Baker-Snoqualmie NF / NCNP region, and a few in the Wenatchee and Okanogan NF regions.An aerial photo is given if I have taken one.** Built in the mid-1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps, this 45' stone tower with live-in top floor observatory served as a state lookout until the mid-1960s when the number of tourists interfered with the firewatcher's duties.Many are the remaining fire lookouts in Washington are located on rugged summits overlooking the forests of the Cascade Range.Several more are located in the northeastern reaches of the state, and a handful continue to stand above the forests of the Olympic Range and the southeast corner of the state.The tower is on the National Historic Lookout Register.While other neighboring summits were having their towers permanently removed, North Mountain's first fire observer did it the old-fashioned way: in a tent.Certainly one of the lowest elevation stations in the Washington Cascades, Heybrook was developed in 1925 with a platform tower, replaced by a 45' tower with L-4 cab in 1932.In 1964, the present 67' treated timber tower was built with an R-6 flat cab.
The present 20' treated timber tower with L-4 cab, built in 1953, is staffed by volunteers.
The job of a lookout was to spot and report fires by telephone or radio so crews could be dispatched quickly.
