The structure was built in 1934 for the Santa Barbara National Forest, a California Region 5 Plan BC-301 on a 10 foot, open timber tower. This lookout replaced an earlier structure destroyed by fire in September 1932.
The lookout was destroyed in a 1972 windstorm that took off the roof then collapsed the walls. The remainder of the structure was removed sometime after the event.
The site is now part of the Los Padres National Forest in Santa Barbara County.
