  • 1910-1925 (at least two rough wood towers built)
  • Funded by the NH Timberland Owners Association, it was turned over to the NH Forestry Commission about 1911. There were at least two log towers. In 1925-6 it was replaced by a new station on Jodrie Hill in Milan, which had better coverage of the area near the Grand Trunk Railway line.
