Description

The Civilian Conservation Corps (C.C.C.) constructed a “steel fire tower” at Mohawk State Forest. The structure, which Living New Deal believes it was located by the parking lot at Mohawk Tower (at the end of Toumey Road), is no longer extant. Satellite imagery suggests that the corner ‘pillars’ of the structure are all that remain.
