To Topographical Map

Built between 1930 and 1933, Atascosa Lookout is a 14x 14 groundhouse with an unusual modified hip roof with a 2 overhang. This historic structure on the Coronado National Forest is not far from the Mexican border. It has gutters to collect rainwater for a cistern, a common-sense solution that was strangely not used often in the West.
