Description 

"Conservation Warden Earl Hilliker was in the village last week in the interests of the new fire district which is to be established in this vicinity. Mr. Hilliker was seeking permission to erect a 64 foot observation tower on the Necedah bluff. A tower of that height on the bluff would provide a most excellent outlook for those on the watch for fires; which could easily be detected for miles around."
