To Topographical Map

The lookout atop Holston High Knob on the Cherokee National Forest in Tennessee near the Virginia state line is a remarkable tower for its location. Located on the southern high knob of Holston Ridge, it offers an extraordinary view from ground level, but has a 100 steel tower with 12x 12 cab with catwalk. Originally located in the flat piney woods of Mississippi, it was moved to Tennessee in 1943, replacing a wooden 60 tower that had been built nine years earlier and accidentally burned. The lookout was staffed until 1991 and is now used on an emergency basis.
