1928-29-30: This site was used as a daily patrol lookout.
August 1936: "Back in 1928-29-30 when I covered McIntyre Point and High Ridge daily by the equestrian method, I used to think that McIntyre Point would be one of the last places I would want to stay. Now I feel that I would rather be here than any other station I have ever been on. I have considerable company; neighbors within one hundred and fifty yards, and real neighbors at that, water and wood handy, a good house and garage, and one of the prettiest views on the Umatilla. Don C. Rohn"
July 10, 1966: "Another 'oldtimer' on the district passes from the picture this year with the closing of the lookout at McIntyre Point. This unique lookout, actually a cabin built out on a promontory overlooking the South Fork of the Walla Walla River, had running water piped to it, something not found in lookout towers. McIntyre Lookout had been built and manned first about 1926. Lands formerly protected by it are now handled by the Oregon State Forest Department and by aerial surveys. Many people also live there, pointed out district fire control officer, Wes Slaughter. Over 800 summer cabins are listed in the area covered by this station, and residents of them alert fire fighters to blazes when they crop up." (Walla Walla Union-Bulletin)
