Mount Spokane Vista House Lookout

Mount Spokane Vista House Lookout

Ron Hall 76
The first of five lookout structures on Mt. Spokane, Washington was built in 1934 by the CCC with native stone found on the summit. The two story stone vista house has a second story dormer on the north to be used as a fire lookout. In 1948 a 85’ wooden live-in tower was constructed, but it collapsed the first winter with an overload of ice. A shorter 45’ tower was built in 1959, to be replaced 13 years later with a 40’ tower. In 1979 the present 40’ tower was built and is still in service. The stone lookout is owned by the State Parks Commission. The towers belong to the Department of Natural Resources. #Fire_lookout #Mt_Spokane
