The Schafer Peak Lookout Tower was originally built in 1938 with an L-4 cab on a 30' pole tower. Then in the late summer of 1954 a 41' treated timber tower with L-4 cab was constructed.
Located above Lake Pend Oreille in Bonner County, Idaho, it offered spectacular
views of not only the lake, but the Cabinet, Selkirk & Bitterroot ranges.
My family bought it from the Forest Service in 1976 (I was 5) - This was back when they just wanted to get rid of the lookout - if we wouldn't have taken it, it would
have been burned to the ground. The windows are in my house in Clark Fork, Idaho, and I also have the bed, door, firefinder stand, table,
and cabinets (don't have the original "electric chair" though...). - As you can tell, Schafer is my favorite....
