This 47-foot Aermotor tower was removed 1935-1936. In 1937, the tower was relocated and additional support sections added for it to become the Greystone Fire Tower. With the added height, the tower stood 92 feet, making it the tallest tower in the state's northern Division A. As of 2019, Greystone continues as an active tower.
