April 1941: "Plans are underway at the present time to complete a 100-foot lookout tower on Euchre Mountain in Lincoln County by the first of fire season. Timbers for the tower are being cut by the Reehers CCC Camp.

July 1941: "One of the State Forestry Department maintenance crews, working in cooperation with the Lincoln County Fire Patrol Association, is busy constructing a truck trail to the summit of Euchre mountain, one of the primary lookouts of the association. Approximately a mile of road construction will be completed in a short time. For the past several years the association has used a tree as a lookout but it is now in an advanced stage of decay and is no longer safe to climb. The new lookout, which is to be a 100-foot tower, is being turned out by the Reehers CCC camp." (The Forest Log)
August 1941: "The new 100-foot lookout tower that is to be constructed on the summit of Euchre mountain in Lincoln county has been hauled to the site and is ready to be assembled. Timbers for the tower were sawed at the CCC mill at Camp Reehers and transported to within a mile of the summit of the mountain by trucks from that camp. From that point it was pulled to the top by one of the state caterpillers over a road that was hastily constructed for that purpose. The CCC organization is having difficulties at the present time in assigning carpenters or enrollees to the job. In case this situation is not relieved it is planned to complete the work by the association in time to use the tower next summer." (The Forest Log)

Gravel and sand is on ground ready for use. The tower will be erected before the coming fire season." (Lincoln FPA Annual Report)

Mrs. Coy's book was serialized several years ago in the Reader's Digest as, 'Fire Lady of Lookout Mountain.'" (Lincoln County Leader)
