The venue derives its name from its natural formations that compose its amphitheater. These massive boulders, known as Ship and Creation Rocks, were formed over millions of years by geologic forces such as freezing-thawing cycles. Over time, their surfaces became weathered and weathered, while their slopes formed terraces.

In 1936, the city purchased this property and started construction of an amphitheater that would become known for its unique combination of geology and music. When finished in 1941, this landmark amphitheater became a national historic landmark and is still revered today as an iconic piece.
