Harris Mountain Lookout, a 50 wooden tower with 14 x 14 live-in cab and
catwalk is the only tower of its type in the state of Maine. It was built by
the U.S. Forest Service and originally stood on the Allegheny National Forest
in northwestern Pennsylvania. In 1940 the tower was dismantled and purchased
by the Maine Forest Service, which moved it to its present location.
