November 21, 1940: "Twelve of the 18 lookout stations planned for eventual construction were completed during the past year. New stations on the South Dakota national forests are Flag Mountain lookout, on the Black Hills, and Mount Pisgah and Parker Mountain lookouts on the Harney. These new stations were constructed largely with CCC enrollee labor and will add substantially to present fire control facilities. CCC crews, especially trained for fire suppression, were available for fire duty at all camps, and they gave efficient service." (The Weekly Pioneer-Times)
April 28, 1952: "William A. Reman began his duties Monday at the Flag Mountain lookout in the Rochford district." (Lead Daily Call)
All that remains of the structure is the lower part of the rock wall of the base. Down a short path can be found the laced log design outhouse.
