Here is some Info I found on the web about the Tower.
POST POINT LOOKOUT
Developed as a camp in the 1920's, a 40' pole L-4 tower was constructed about 1937. For some reason, this was quickly replaced by an 82' treated timber L-6 tower in the 1940's. Then in 1962 an 84' treated timber R-6 tower was built. It was destroyed in 1994 when an attempt was made to lift the cab and top half of the tower 6 miles to the east to become a rental. It proved too heavy for the Army Chinook helicopter and had to be dropped as soon as it was lifted from the lower part of the tower.
