October 23, 1927: "Jackson peak, where a new lookout station of the latest design is being constructed. Glass-walled on all sides, all instruments and furniture are so arranged that they will not obstruct the view from any direction. Here a man and his wife eat, sleep and work throughout the fire season, miles above any human habitation. During an electrical storm one or the other must be on 'lookout' day and night. If a fire does occur, the man leaves to put it out, while his wife continues the vigil alone until relieved, often having no rest or sleep for days at a time. Wind traveling at high speed is almost continuous, so the station is anchored by half-inch steel cables at each corner. A new trail four and a half miles longs, with a grade of 30 per cent in places, is the only road up or down and where all supplies must be carried." (Idaho Statesman)

July 1988: The lookout threatened by the Willis Gulch fire along with a nearby private sub-division.
