The pyramid was built by Sir Rufane Donkin in memory of his wife Elizabeth who had died of a fever aged 28 and gave the city its name.

Sir Rufane Donkin baute die Pyramide in Erinnerung an seine Frau Elizabeth, die im Alter von gerade einmal 28 Jahren an einem Fieber starb. Sie ist die Namensgeberin der Stadt.
