A bit of Ozarks history was being taken down Tuesday, May 21. The Missouri Department of Conservation fire tower on Highway C near Ulman was taken down with a crane. A fire tower is thought to have been on the site since the 1940s and the one being removed is one of the last in the area as towers at Eugene and Rocky Mount have been gone for some time. Once the domain of fire spotters, the towers have been replaced by airplanes and helicopters. A radio tower remains at the site. The photo was provided by Jim McGowen.
