It was the home and laboratory of Sir George Everest. He was a Surveyor-General of India from 1830 to 1843. Sir George bought the Park Estate in Mussoorie located on the western edge of town in 1833 and lived here for almost a decade before retiring to England. 

Sir George was largely responsible for completing the section of the Great Trigonometric Survey of India along the meridian arc from the south of India extending north to Nepal. 

Hillary and Tenzing were the first successful persons who ascended the Mount Everest. Later on they named this peak as a Mount Everest to give tribute to Sir George Everest.
