NATIONAL HISTORIC LOOKOUT REGISTER

Take a look at What's New in our web.

Welcome to the home page for the National Historic Lookout Register.  For complete information on sites listed in the National Historic Lookout Register--with maps and field visit updates--go to www.firetower.org. That site is developed and maintained by Rob Hoeye of iamwho.com.  Mr. Hoeye is also the historian/archivist of the Forest Fire Lookout Association.

The National Historic Lookout Register (NHLR) is maintained by the American Resources Group in Washington, D.C.  This is the U.S. equivalent of the World Lookout Register.  The registers are a cooperative effort of the Forest Fire Lookout Association, the National Forestry Association, the National Woodland Owners Association, the U.S. Forest Service, state foresters and Interior agencies.

 Listing in the National Historic Lookout Register is often a first step toward eventual nomination to the National Register of Historic Sites maintained by the U.S. Department of the Interior.  Sometimes necessary structural modifications preclude listing in the latter register, and the only appropriate recognition given to these historic lookout sites is that afforded by the NHLR.

When a structure is less than 50 years old, but has sufficient historical significance to be registered, the lookout is listed in the National Lookout Register with an NHLR number, and is automatically transferred to the NHLR upon the 50th anniversary of its construction.

Fire lookouts are a proud symbol of forest conservation in America and are well recognized by the general public.  They also often continue to perform an invaluable role in early detection, so important in keeping wildfires manageable and within budget.
