The North Lake Tahoe Historical Society was founded in 1969 and incorporated in 1971 by a group of concerned citizens who were passionate about this history, and its preservation. Their first major project was to preserve the historic Gatekeeper’s Cabin, then to rebuild the structure as a museum after it was destroyed by arson fire in 1978. The Gatekeeper’s Museum opened in 1981. In 1992, the collections were expanded by the donation of the Marion Steinbach Indian Basket collection. The mission of NLTHS is the preservation, presentation and interpretation of Lake Tahoe history.
