1933: The new tower was a 43-foot round fir pole tower with a L-4 model 1931 cab. Required 125 man days to construct. A 12 mile pack haul was required to get the materials to the site at a total cost of $200. Water was available at a spring Approximately 800 feet to the N.E.

July 23, 1938: " I visited Holland Point lookout on July 20, 1938 and while there made a rather thorough inspection of the tower and house. This tower is 40 feet high and is constructed of round timber with cable braces between the tower legs and four cable guys at the corners. These cable braces and guys do not hold the tower steady, and a person walking about the house will sway the tower several inches. A strong wind will sway it nearly a foot. Tightening the cables does not help much. This swaying effects the fire finder so that it is impossible to keep it level or in exact orientation. You can adjust the fire finder and walk around the tower and it will be off several minutes. The fire finder base is solid to the floor. Additional guys on each corner might hold the tower a little steadier but I doubt if it would be satisfactory. The best method would be to replace the cable braces with round pole braces, ring connected, and heavier guy wires on the corners. This would cost about $250.00. The lightning protection is not quite up to standard and 130 feet of no. 2 copper wire with 18 “U” clamps will be needed. The visibility can be considerably improved if some additional clearing is made. I estimate that about $150.00 would take care of the necessary clearing. The lookout can do very little of this work alone and it will be necessary to hire other men. I would like to start this work as soon as funds are available."
