1909: "No money from the state appropriation could be used for building or maintaining these stations. The money which had been placed at the disposal of the commission by Mr. R.E. Faulkner was used for this purpose, and in the fall of 1909 a station was built on Mt. Kearsarge. This mountain overlooks the towns of Conway, Eaton, Madison, Albany, Bartlett, Jackson and Chatham, and parts of other towns. Since its establishment twenty-six fires have been discovered and reported by the watchman." (Report of the Forestry Commissioner)
July 17, 1910: "On July 17, 1910, a fire set in a heavy pine slash only a short distance from the Kearsarge postoffice. It was supposed to have been started by a careless smoker, and was in a dangerous place, as a number of buildings and young growth pine were close at hand. The watchman on Mt. Kearsarge saw the first curl of smoke, and immediately telephoned the forest fire warden, who summoned help and was on the ground before most of the people in the immediate vicinity knew of the fire. Four hours hard fighting sufficed to extinguish the fire. Considerable damage was done to young pine, but the promptness of the lookout man and fire warden saved a great deal of property." (Report of the Forestry Commissioner)
September 1924: "The New Hampshire Forestry Department is erecting four new lookout towers, one on Mount Kearsarge. -- News Letter, N.H. Forestry Dept.." (The Forest Worker)
September 2012: A major renovation of the Kearsarge Mountain Lookout has begun. Materials for the project were flown to the 3,268 foot summit by helicopter. Work to be done includes replacing the tower legs and other timbers. Members of the White Mountain National Forest staff are doing the repairs.
