The Story of Tahoe Part I – 1844 to 1900 begins when a lost, starving expedition discovers the native Washoe people’s most precious jewel: Lake Tahoe. From there, the logging industry booms at Tahoe, tourism flourishes with the railroad industry, and historic estates are built all around the lake.
Part II – 1900 to 1960.
Part II picks up again at the turn of the century. The 1900’s find Tahoe ravaged by logging. But tourists continue to flock to the area, lured by the promise of fishing, hiking, and camping. With the introduction of the automobile, Tahoe continues to grow.
Comprised of old photographs, early motion picture footage, and reenactments, these movies bring to life the Tahoe of yesteryear.
