The rebuilding of a historical lookout tower in the Plumas National forest continues on. The Argentine Lookout over Quincy has been undergoing a restoration effort by a group of locals who wish to see it return to its former glory. The lookout stood to watch over the town of Quincy from 1930 to 1970 before being decommissioned. It even survived the Dixie fire with the help of firefighters who wrapped the historical building in fireproofing material. The Argentine Rock chapter of the Forest fire Lookout Association is seeking volunteer help to save the local landmark holding meetings throughout the year planning projects and activities. This summer’s efforts continue with a meeting on Tuesday the 28th at 6 pm at the Greenhorn Fire Hall in Quincy. You are invited to share your thoughts and learn more about the projects that aim to not just restore the tower for use as a fire lookout but also as a possible tourist attraction where visitors could stay overnight. The lookout chapter will also be seen at the county fair and parade with a booth and float to help educate and welcome new members.
