Tallac Historic Site opens Sunday

Provided to the Tribune

The U.S. Forest Service, the Tahoe Heritage Foundation and the Tahoe Tallac Association are excited to announce the annual celebration of the season’s opening of the Tallac Historic Site from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday.

It is a wonderful spot to bring the family and admission is free. The site, on Highway 89 on the south end of Lake Tahoe, contains three unique restored summer homes built by millionaires in the early part of the last century. In addition, the property still contains a rare and magnificent old growth forest that has never been logged, containing both hiking and bicycle trails.

On this one day, the restored Pope House will be open for free tours. Normally there is a charge for tours. The Tahoe Heritage Foundation will be selling popcorn, soft drinks and ice cream to the visitors.

Parking is available at both the Valhalla and Tallac locations.
