    The U.S. Forest Service is looking for some help in its investigation of vandalism to a historic cabin and fire tower at Stratton Mountain in Vermont.

    Officials believe the damage happened sometime before May 16.

    The forest service says the caretaker's cabin, built in 1928, and the 55-foot tower, built in 1934, are landmarks in the origin of both Vermont's Long Trail and the Appalachian National Scenic Trail. Both are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

    The Bennington Banner reports
    the forest service says the shelter provides cover for Green Mountain Club caretakers who have looked after long-distance and day hikers.

    The forest service asks that anyone with information contact the Green Mountain National Forest Law Enforcement division at 802-362-2307, ext. 222.
