This 60' Aeromotor LS-42 tower featured a 7'x7' steel cab. It was originally erected on Windbeam Mountain in 1920. In 1971, it was relocated to Ringwood State Park using National Guard and volunteer labor. It was subsequently destroyed by vandals. The remains were removed to Ramapo Mountain State Forest and rebuilt beginning in 1983.
