Watson Cabin Museum is living history. As the oldest building in all of Tahoe, having been built in 1909, it still looks like it did when it was built in the center of Tahoe City above the shores of Lake Tahoe. The home originally housed the son of Robert Montgomery Watson (the builder of the building that is now Gatekeepers Museum, a home built in the early 1900s for the Watermaster of the Fanny Bridge water outlet), his wife and their child. It was a home ahead of its time as it was the first house in the area to have indoor plumbing. The museum opens its doors to show the living quarters of the Watson Family in summer only. You can visit the museum free of charge from late June to the middle of September.
