Tahoe Action: Wine tasting event; history series features Whittell; Jack Johnson on stage
History series at Valhalla to feature George Whittell
Historian David Woodruff presents Eastern Sierra history in the Valhalla Grand Hall at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 2.
Sit back and relax with Woodruff as he assumes the character of one of the wealthiest men in the United States in the 1930s, George Whittell, who kept an African Lion for a pet, built one of the most beautiful pleasure crafts to navigate Lake Tahoe, entertained former presidents, and unintentionally conserved a large portion of Lake Tahoe lands for the public to enjoy today.
The 60-minute program is free at Valhalla Grand Hall, Tallac Historic Site. 1 Valhalla Rd, South Lake Tahoe.
