The Fire Tower in Black Rock Forest was built in the 1930’s. Like other fire towers built in that time, it was made with a lightening rod and metal straight down to the ground so that a lookout could safely stand at the top level during an electric storm and record on a map where lightening had struck so that they could investigate later for damage.
