May 27, 1929: "H.J. Anderson, Chief Fire Warden for the State, visited Blaney Park last week and selected a new site for the fire tower to be located near Blaney. The old Blaney tower is one of the smaller open type, sixty feet in height. From this tower it is very difficult to see fires very far south, thus leaving the territory around Seul Choix unprotected. The site for the new 104-foot enclosed tower will be two miles south of Bear Creek Lodge and one mile east on what is known as Teapot Dome. This 'Dome' has an elevation of 60 feet higher than the site of the present tower, making the height of the new lookout over 100 feet higher than the present 'crow's nest.' In this location it will be possible to locate fires much easier and faster than is possible now, and it will protect the property taken over by the Inland Steel interests as well as the property it now protects. The site for the tower will be leased to the State by the owners of Blaney Park, and the tower will soon be under construction. The old tower will remain where it is for the present, and will be manned during 'fire' weather by Blaney Park." (The Escanaba Daily Press)
