Watson Cabin Living Museum

Located at 560 North Lake Boulevard, Tahoe City, California, Watson Cabin still stands on the original site where it was built in 1909 by Robert Montgomery Watson and his son, Bob, as a honeymoon cottage for Bob and his bride, Stella Tong Watson.The log cabin is listed on the National Register of Historic Homes as the oldest building built on site in Tahoe City.

Since January, 1990, the North Lake Tahoe Historical Society has operated the cabin as a living museum featuring century-old furnishings and accessories.

Thanks to many wonderful volunteer docents, the Watson Cabin Living Museum is free and open to the public during the busier summer months.
