The Hurricane Mountain Fire Observation Station is a historic fire observation station located on Hurricane Mountain at Keene in Essex County, New York. The station and contributing resources include a 35-foot-tall (10.7 m), steel frame lookout tower erected in 1919, two trails leading up the 3,694-foot (1,126 m) summit, and the ruins of a lean-to style observers cabin. The tower is a prefabricated structure built by the Aermotor Corporation to provide a front line of defense in preserving the Adirondack Park from the hazards of forest fires.
