Established in 1899 when C. D. Lane put up a large warehouse as headquarters for the supplies he intended to use on his numerous gold claims i n the Council district (North American Transportation and Trading Company, 1900, p 25). The name was derived from the mountain on its north side. Colby (1939, p. 363) referred to this as a fishing villaage with a population of 205 . A post office was established in 1932 and continues today (Ricks, 1965, p. 70-71). The population was 198 in 1920; 205 in 1930; 199 in 1939; 129 in 1950; and 151 in 1960, of whom 119 were Eskimo.
