History

The descriptive name "Pyramid Island Harbor" was given in 1868 by Commander Meade, U.S. Navy (USN), and published in 1881 on Hydrographic Chart 883. It was called Pyramid Harbor by U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey (USC&GS) in the 1891 Coast Pilot (p. 201). The Tlingit Indian name was reported by Aurel and Arthur Krause (1883, map) as L'chtinigre. It was also called Labouchere Bay by the employees of the Hudson Bay Co. for the company steamer Labouchere.
