The Klucanina lookout tower was established on the initiative of the Rozhled na Tišnov association, which was established in May 2001. Its members sought primarily to improve the local cultural life and development of the Tišnov region. Their intention was, among other things, to restore the lookout tower on the nearby Klucanina hill.
There used to be a lookout tower on this hill. It was built by the Czech Tourists Club in 1934, but its condition gradually deteriorated, until it had to be closed for good in the 1950s. No one sought its restoration, so it gradually fell into disrepair until it collapsed. At the beginning of the new millennium, only a torso of a stone wall remained after it.
The construction of the current lookout tower began in the summer of 2002. The construction was financed from the public collection, the association, the Tišnov town hall, etc. The construction costs climbed to approximately 3.2 million crowns. The lookout tower was designed by Luboš Chvíla and Helena Chvílová. The lookout tower has two observation decks and an outdoor platform, located just below the top.
The grand opening of the lookout tower took place on October 11, 2003.
