Angel Island served as a quarantine station for those diagnosed with bubonic plague beginning in 1891.

Name Meaning

Probably for the most part a transferred use of the surname, which originally denoted someone who lived near a large boulder or outcrop. In other cases it may derive directly from the vocabulary word (Old English stān), and be chosen as representing qualities of strength and endurance.
