November 7, 1933: "Went to the top of Mt Nebo with Mr. Forsberg and Mr. Amort. It would be possible to build a truck trail to the middle peak on a 15 to 20% grade by going up the west side of the mountain. The lookout tower should be at least 75 feet in height, as Nebo is in reality a long hogsback with no distinct top." (Samuel L. Miller Field Report)
March 1934: "Rock work is slowing up progress on the Nebo Lookout road but the boys are getting more skilled every day with the drill and hammer plus dynamite. Another one-fourth mile of construction will put the road to the site of the lookout tower. Andy (Anderson) located a shortcut trail to the job that enables the men to work later and still get to camp on time." (The Forest Log)
April 23, 1934: " April 1, Wendling. The road is now completed to the top of Mt Nebo with one or two days of sloping yet to be done. The site of the tower and the lookout house are completely cleared and they are ready to start constructing the tower." (Samuel L. Miller Field Report)
1934: A 79-foot tower was constructed by members of the Wendling CCC camp.
June 9, 1934: Panorama photos taken by Robert Cooper.
June 20, 1936: Panorama photos were taken by S.L.M.
September 13, 1942: "Ronald Byers, engaged as forestry lookout at the Mt. Nebo post, has been transferred to Castle Rock. Donald McDonald of Marcola will continue serving at the Nebo lookout." (The Eugene Guard)
1956: "The observation cab was found to be deteriorated to the point of being unsafe for use. Materials were purchased and replacement will be done as weather permits." (Eastern Lane District Annual Report)
