The Bull Mountain Forest Fire Lookout Tower in Patrick County was originally a wooden structure built in 1943 for the Virginia Forest Service (VDF). It was replaced by the current 60 Aermotor tower with 7 x 7 metal cab in 1949, and a one-room ground residence cabin was added in 1950. In 1989 the site -- now an emergency lookout -- was dedicated to Virginia Governor Gerald L. Baliles, who grew up near the tower and visited it many times in his youth.
