A project that was started more than two years ago was recently completed when the new sign marking the Valhalla Estate and the Valhalla Boathouse at the Tallac Historic Site was installed.

The Tahoe Tallac Association contributed $20,000 to the U.S. Forest Service, Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit for the new Valhalla sign on Highway 89, just north of Camp Richardson. The project is in cooperation with the U.S.F.S.

“The beautifully lighted, wood framed, metal, raw lumber, electroplated enhanced patina photo of Valhalla makes a statement that the Tahoe Tallac Association is alive and well,” said Vicki Hanes, president of the Tahoe Tallac Association board of directors.

The association promotes and sponsors arts and cultural events at Valhalla and the Boathouse Theater. The design is the result of U.S.F.S. design engineers and Mary Beth Gustafson, Jane Oden and Jackie Faike of the Lake Tahoe U.S.F.S. with input from the Tahoe Tallac Association and PPI Designs of Portland, Ore.

The Tahoe Tallac Association will operate the properties under a Granger-Thye permit for the next 20 years. The permit was grated to the Tahoe Tallac Association by the U.S.F.S. and Lake Tahoe Basin Management by the Department of Agriculture. Under the new permit, facilities at Valhalla and the Boathouse Theater will be available year-around.

“The new signage will make the public visually aware that Valhalla and the Boathouse Theater are available for private meetings, music events, plays, weddings, art exhibits, holiday fairs, banquets and quilt shows. The Boathouse Theater may never be used for weddings, political or religious gatherings according to the U.S.F.S. Forest Service, Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit guidelines,” Hanes said.

“The Tahoe Tallac Association and the U.S.F.S./LTBMU make Valhalla and the Boathouse Theater viable, usable, restored historical assets for all who live at and visit Lake Tahoe. For the past 20 years at Valhalla the Tahoe Tallac Association have been restoration partners with the Forest Service.”
