History

Named in 1933 by U.S. Forest Service (USFS)"for Captain Rowan of the brig Eliza, who traded with the Indians of Southeast Alaska in the late 18th and early 19th centuries." The name "North Arm Bay of Pillars" was published in 1899 by U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey (USC&GS) and was used locally until 1933.
