Plympton Kelly, an early settler in this neighbor- hood, named this hill “Mount Tabor” after he read about a battle fought by the French against the Muslims near Mount Tabor in Palestine. Not until 1912, many years after the hill was developed into a neighborhood park, was it discovered to be an extinct volcano. The summit is 600 feet above the surrounding area.
