June 22, 1919: "A new lookout house to top Mount Klosche Nantch in the Olympic national forest, on the Solduc burn, eight miles west of Lake Crescent, is being shipped by the forest service, the Washington Forest Fire association and the state forestry department. The Washington Forest Fire association will provide the lookout man. The old Solduc burn is about 12 miles in extent, running from near Lake Crescent to Beaver. It was one of the biggest single fires ever known in the Northwest. The forest service is restocking this burned over area and has planted 550 acres this year. The lookout will command an outlook over the burn and be an immense protection to the young growth during forest fire season, assert forest service officials." (The Oregon Daily Journal)
