Stone Mountain's location at the juncture of two major Native American trails made it a natural meeting place for local natives. European settlers began moving to the area in the early 1800s, and called their village New Gibraltar. In the mid-1800s its name was officially changed to Stone Mountain, after its prominent exposed granite dome. The dome, with its Confederate-themed carving, attracts thousands of tourists every year.
In the 1830s and 1840s, the railroad was built through Stone Mountain, connecting it with Atlanta and Augusta, and bringing tourists to the area. It also boosted the local granite quarrying sector.
