The tower was first seen by white explorers from the United States, the Geological Survey in 1875. And was first climbed, using a long wooden ladder attached to the surface of the stone, on July 4, 1893.
The surveyor said the stone was Devils Tower, after they found out that his real name is "The Bad God's Tower," as the local Indians called it.
The tower is still highly revered as the site of the Indian vision quest.
