Hunter Mountain has been a landmark in the Catskill Mountains of New York since the region was settled in the late 1700s. The first lookout -- the fourth in the state -- was a three-legged wooden tower with open platform built in 1909. The present 60-toot steel Aermotor tower with metal 7x7 cab was built by the NY Dept. of Environmental Conservation in 1917 and remained in active service until 1988.
