South Lake Tahoe
Historical Society & Museum
If you're a history buff, you'll enjoy a visit to South Lake Tahoe Historical Society & Museum. See early photographs and displays of Tahoe's history — from Native American occupation through its 19th century development to the present time.

The museum contains an interesting collection of Tahoe's historical artifacts — everything from Washoe Indian baskets, tools and arrowheads, to a model of the historic S.S. Tahoe steamship.



Take a seat and relax while watching video clips of "old" Lake Tahoe (see photo below). Historical books and other Tahoe memorabilia can be purchased at the museum.

Check out the 1920's "swimming attire" (pictured below) — how fashions have changed over the years!

Museum Hours
Summer: Open daily 11am-4pm
Winter: Open weekends 12-4pm


Log Cabin
The old Log Cabin (pictured right) was built in 1931. It is located directly behind the museum. Although you can't go inside the cabin, you can peak through the windows and see the furnishings inside.

Osgood's Toll House
Built in 1859, this is Lake Tahoe's oldest standing building. It is located next to the Log Cabin, behind the museum. The photo above shows the Toll House in the background, behind the Log Cabin.
