1947: "During the summer it was decided that the lookout tower at Buck Mountain no longer served any useful purpose in fire detection due to the fact that timber operators in that part of the country were ceasing their operations and moving away to other points where timber is more plentiful. It was decided therefore to abandon this tower and utilize the equipment installed therein at another point. The tower was accordingly closed at the end of the fire season and the equipment was all brought in to Edmonton for overhaul and repair." (Annual report of the Department of Lands and Mines, FY ended 3/31/1948)
