  • 1911-1978, steel possibly still in place; unconfirmed
  • One of 6 towers built by the NH Timberland Owners Association in 1911, taken over by the state in 1915., when a new tower was constructed. A 30' wooden tower, built 1915, rebuilt 1922. During that period the top was enclosed. A 32' steel tower replaced the wooden one in 1933. It closed in 1976, and the cab was removed later, but the steel was still in place as of 1993.
