Cinnamon Butte Lookout Tower – Umpqua National Forest OR

Description

The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) built the fire lookout tower on Cinnamon Butte in 1934.   Cinnamon Butte lies 5 miles north of Diamond Lake, east of highway 138, and west of the Mt Theilsen Wilderness Area.

The lookout tower is 35 feet high with a 14×14 foot observation cabin, all built entirely of wood. This was a standard form and size of lookout tower.  It still stands.

The CCC built several fire lookouts for the US Forest Service in Umpqua National Forest, dozens around Oregon and hundreds across the country.
