High Knob Tower to be Rebuilt

Wise, VA - Next month construction will begin on a new High Knob Tower at Jefferson National Forest.

The original three-story tower was destroyed by arson back in 2007.

The U.S. Forest Service says it awarded a contract for the replacement project to Dot Construction of Beaufort, North Carolina.

The new tower will be located adjacent to the High Knob Recreation Area.

The project is expected to be completed by the end of the year.
