The little shack shown in the other images is on top of the big platform at the top of this tower. The stairway goes up the inside of the tower and ends up inside the shack.

Visible off to the right is the crypt of Dr. Elisha Mitchell, who died on the mountain while on a personal mission to confirm its status as the highest peak east of the Mississippi.
