It was named by Plympton Kelly, son of Oregon City pioneer resident Clinton Kelly.
The Tabor cinder cone is part of the Boring Lava Field, an extensive network of cinder cones and small shield volcanoes ranging from Boring, Oregon to southwest Washington, and dating to the Plio-Pleistocene era.
The lava field has been extinct for over 300,000 years.
Three other cinder cones from this field also lie within the city of Portland: Rocky Butte, Powell Butte, and Kelly Butte.
It became a city-recognized neighborhood (encompassing a far smaller area than its historical boundaries) in 1974.
Mato Paha or “Bear Mountain” is the Lakota name given to Bear Butte State Park.
