Seven Gables (13,100 ft.)

Named by T.S. Solomons in 1894

Also Lakes

"The peak was named on Sept. 20, 1894, by Theodore S. Solomons and Leigh Bierce. 'The south wall of the gap we found to be the side of a peak, the eccentric shape of which suggested the name Seven Gables, which we hastened to fasten upon it.' (SCB 1, no. 6, May 1895: 230.) The lakes were first named on the 15-minute quad."
