"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."
