Tallac Historic Site open

Provided to the Tribune

The Tallac Historic Site on the south end of Lake Tahoe, though within a mile of the Angora fire, was totally spared from any damage. It is now open daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. until mid-September. The site contains three magnificent homes that were summer retreats for San Francisco socially-elite families in the early part of the last century.

Everyone is welcome to come stroll the grounds of the three estates — there is no charge along with free parking. Tours of the exquisitely-finsished Pope House are held daily at 11 a.m., 1 and 2:30 p.m. There is a charge of $5 per person for these guided tours.

The Tallac Historic Site in on State Route 89 (Emerald Bay Road,) three miles west of the “Y.” For information call the Baldwin Museum on the site at (530) 541-5227. The site is managed by the U.S. Forest Service and operates in partnership with the Tahoe Heritage Foundation, which supports the restoration and preservation of the site.
