1953: "Location and leasing of site for new lookout in Grant County." (Central Oregon District Annual Report)
July 8, 1954: "A new style lookout building has recently been completed in the Izee area. The building is of three-story design, with garage on the lowest level, living quarters on the second floor, and the lookout post on the top. The structure is covered with aluminum sheathing. It, like all of the state forestry department's other lookouts and fire stations, has already been manned for the season." (Blue Mountain Eagle)
1954: "Personnel of the John Day Unit with assistance from the Prineville Unit constructed a 3-story, metal covered, 14 x 14 standard lookout in the Izee section of the John Day Unit. The lumber and pre-cut sections were hauled to the site and work commenced on June 2 and was sufficiently framed in to provide quarters and detection for the summer season. The structure is complete except for lightning protection." "Pyramid Lookout 18S 27E Sec 7: Costs - labor $1207, material $2142, Total $3349." (Central Oregon District Annual Report)
1957: "A noise problem has developed in the Pyramid Lookout area. The FL type radio at the lookout received continual static during the summer, becoming progressively worse as the summer progressed. It has no particular pattern but is mostly during daylight hours. Reception at the lookout was such that the volume had to be very low (too low for good reception) to keep the static from becoming nerveracking. It is possibly the REA power line which is 5 to 6 miles from the lookout." (Central Oregon District Annual Report)
November 1957: "The devastating effects of a terrific hail storm are surprisingly evident on a strip of forest land a mile wide and five miles long in a part of the state protective unit located on the watershed of the upper South Fork of the John Day river some 30 miles south of Dayville. The Pyramid lookout was in the path of the storm. The storm windows had not yet been raised but the aluminum siding of the building was marked with dents half an inch deep and as much as two inches across. The force of the hail can be guessed from the fact that the siding had been nailed to shiplap." (The Forest Log)
