Sunburst Fire Lookout
Sunburst Fire Lookout was built in 1922 as part of the fire lookout program.
At one time it was one of 146 structures on the Flathead National Forest
(Northwestern, Montana) that made up the integral chain of forest fire detection. Today it is one of less than 15 remaining lookouts and is the only D-1 standard fire lookout still standing. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. - US Forest Service
