  • 1931 - 1973, standing.
  • Built in 1931, a 53' steel tower. It was deeded to the town of Stratham in 1976, with the state retaining the right to use the tower for fire detection as needed. The steel stamp "Bethlehem" on the tower leg base probably indicates that the steel was fabricated in the NH Forests and Lands shop. The cab was burned in 1997, for a second time, and has been repaired.
