Bing Young provided the following brief history of the lookout:

Two Point Peak el. 9425 ft.) is located adjacent to Shellrock Peak on the border between the Payette and Salmon National Forests. It was an old lookout, first indicated on the 1919-1923 fire plans.

Two Point Peak, along with Shellrock, was probably always manned from the Payette Forest side, but had value for the Salmon as a secondary lookout. However, the late 1920’s saw the end of  Two Point Peak as Shellrock had better visibility into the Payette side. No lookout building was ever constructed at Two Point.

Two Point’s greates asset to the Salmon Forest was its visibility into Brush Creek, which emptiess into the Middle Fork of the Salmon River. This View was not duplicated with Shellrock. —Salmon National Forest Fire Lookouts by Bing Young 1982, page 41.
