Museum opens for season

The Lake Tahoe Historical Society Museum, 3058 Lake Tahoe Blvd., is open for the summer, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.

The museum chronicles the development of the Tahoe Basin since it was occupied by Native Americans. Artifacts tell the story of Washoe lifestyle, U.S. discovery, gold and silver mining, the Pony Express, railroads and marine transportation, and the onset of summer resorts. The 20th century with gaming and snowsports followed. Prints of historic photographs are available. A 1930s-era log cabin and Osgood’s Toll House, built in 1859, are on the grounds.

Call (530) 541-5458.
