In 1930, the City of Frederick developed the surrounding area for water supply purposes. This included the purchase of 6,000 acres of forested land on the headwaters of Fishing and Hunting Creeks. The Hamburg Road Fire Tower was built in cooperation of the Maryland Department of Forestry as part of an effort to commercialize the forest.
