October 27, 1921: "Forest Commissioner Samuel T. Dana announces that department has just ordered the material for a 47-foot steel lookout tower for Bald Mountain in the town of Dedham, Hancock county, which will cover a large territory east of the Penobscot river, which has so far been without any fire protection. Mr. Dana said that this tower will round out the lookout system in that section and that territory east of the Penobscot will be well covered. The erection and location of this tower is being done at the request of the selectmen of three towns closely interested, Dedham, Otis and Mariaville, together with the landowners. The towns mentioned will bear about 40 per cent of the cost. It is hoped to secure the material in season to transport it to the top of the 1261-foot mountain this fall and the actual erection will be done in the coming spring." (Daily Kennebec Journal)
1930: "The experiment of 1930 in forming a Fire District composed of sixteen towns overlooked by Dedham-Bald Lookout in Hancock County together with a District Fire Warden in charge, proved highly successful." (Annual Report of the Forest Commissioner of the State of Maine)
November 2009: The fire tower was removed with plans to relocate the structure in Canada the following year.
