September 1934: "Camp Boyington--Lookout stations are a necessary and integral part of forest fire fighting equipment. Without them and the lookout attendants and their modern equipment. It would be no easy matter to spot a fire and report it to the proper authorities, so that men and equipment could be rushed to the scene of the conflagration. In most cases, lookout stations are located on some high peak of a mountain range so that the spotting of forest fires can be made more easily. The latest lookout station to be added to the list has been erected on Green Mountain, 14 miles airline, south and east of Camp Boyington. The tower is 75 feet high, and has been equipped with the most modern fire finding equipment. Besides the tower, quarters for the attendant has been built. Donald Kyle has been put in charge of this latest station." (The Forest Log)
August 28, 1942: "Improvements consist of a 14x14 Aladdin ground cabin and a 7x7 cab on an 80-foot tower. A tent, with floor, is being used for sleeping quarters. A 12x15 storeroom and sleeping quarters is recommended for this station as well as a good woodshed. Plans for these structures will be sent shortly. The ground cabin is suitable for yearlong aircraft observation work for a commanding view of the surrounding country is available from it. Slight winterization of this structure is needed in the way of insulating around windows and installing cupboards. A good cook stove is furnished but two heating stoves will be needed for the new arrangement of quarters. The wood cutting problem is relative easy to handle." (A letter to James Frankland, USFS Engineering from W.N. Parke, AWS Inspector)
