The last steel fire tower in the Bear Mountain-Harriman State Park, Jackie Jones Lookout was constructed in 1928 by the Palisades Interstate Park Commission, who operated the facility until 1931. From that time the facility was operated by Forest Fire Control until it closed in the 1970s. The 60 Aermotor LS-40 tower with 7x7 metal cab features windows of an unusual design.
