Lots of history of the area and B/W photos. Will background you on the lake's history. Give it a chance!

“Interesting piece of history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2012

Loved all the indian baskets and color charts from native shrubbery, old skis, sled, dresses, boots, etc. This is a nice history of old TAHOE Americana.

“A Step back in Time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2011

Although small, this is in fact how people lived in the tahoe basin in the mid 1800s. I thought it was fascinating and definitely worth seeing. Can you just imagine being in a little log cabin on the lake with nothing else around? Cool.
