HISTORICAL NOTE

The peak was named for a gold mine located on its northeast slope, originally the "Stonewall Jackson Mine" founded in 1870 by William Skidmore. Due to intense feelings after the Civil War, the name was changed to "Stonewall Mine". It produced more than $2 million before it closed in 1892.
