August 4, 1922: "Two new lookout towers will be established by the state department of forestry in northeastern Pennsylvania this month. One tower will be stationed on the highest mountain near Newfoundland, Wayne county." (Altoona Mirror)
March 8, 1961: "One of the Poconos' 'youngest' citizens, who, to quote him directly 'will, God willing, be 39, come April 16,' is 79-year-old William 'Bill' Hause. The coming of Spring means many different things to many different people. But to Newfoundland's blithe spirit, Spring means 75 steps almost straight up, twice a day. Bill Hause is a fire warden, who, for the past 22 years has climbed the 75-step, 70-foot fire tower known as Gould's Tower, during the 'danger months' of April, May, October and November. This is the time when wardens keep a constant watch from their high perch for telltale signs of smoke." (The Pocono Record)
April 18, 1967: "It was a grand celebration on Sunday for William 'Bill' Hause, veteran fire warden at Goulds Fire Tower in Angels, with the 70-foot tower opening for the season; 86 candles on his birthday cake; and the 45th anniversary of the construction of the soaring tower high above Newfoundland. Bill Hause, at 86, is beginning his 29th year as fire warden in the place he loves best: the Pocono Mountains." (The Pocono Record)
