The Gatekeepers Museum

130 West Lake Boulevard
Tahoe City, CA

The Gatekeeper’s Museum is a reconstruction of the original Gatekeeper’s Cabin, on the same site where the original stood until it was destroyed by arson fire in the early 1980s.
The original Gatekeeper’s cabin was built by Robert Montgomery Watson—also the builder of the Watson Cabin—to be the home of the Watermaster who controlled the flow of water out of Lake Tahoe. We still have a Watermaster, but s/he no longer lives in this cabin. Instead, the cabin showcases Tahoe history, from the Washoe people through the logging and mining eras and the establishment of the tourism industry at Lake Tahoe. Exhibits include Native American baskets, resort memorabilia, historical photographs, clothing, oral histories, maps, archival documents, newspapers and artifacts.

Sunday-Monday : 10am-5pm
Wednesday-Saturday: 10am-5pm
Tuesdays: Closed

Watson Cabin

560 North Lake Boulevard
Tahoe City, CA

The Watson Cabin still stands on the original site where the Robert Montgomery Watson built it in 1909, and remains an outstanding example of turn-of-the-century construction. It is the oldest building in Tahoe City that still sits where it was built, in the heart of Tahoe City, above Commons Beach, and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The first residents of the Cabin were Watson’s son Robert, his wife Stella and their daughter, Mildred. While the cabin is a testament to the simplicity of pioneer life, it was one of the first in Tahoe City to have indoor plumbing! Originally, the cabin contained a living room, kitchen and an outdoor porch. Upstairs there were 2 bedrooms, a sewing room, and amazingly, indoor plumbing in the bathroom! Eventually, the outdoor porch was extended and enclosed to make room for the family of three who for many years lived here year 'round. The other house of note that Robert M. Watson built was the Gatekeeper’s Cabin next to Fanny Bridge, now the Gatekeeper’s Museum.
