Tahoe time capsule items to be displayed Sunday
October 30, 2014
INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — Fifty years ago, on Sept. 27, 1964, a time capsule was sealed at the site of Incline Village's first elementary school on Southwood Boulevard. It was filled with various items from that time, and scheduled to be opened at a later date.
The time capsule was officially opened in 2010 at a reunion of one of Incline High School's classes. The items from the time capsule will be on display Sunday, Nov. 2, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Incline Village history display at 899 Tahoe Blvd. in Incline Village (in the Starbucks building).
Also on display will be two special renderings just received by the Incline Village and Crystal Bay Historical Society. The bright artwork depicts the original vision for Incline Village.
Also available for viewing will be a variety of brochures, plans and maps for Incline Village. Check out original sales brochures for Lakeview, Mill Creek Estates and Ponderosa. Pin your name to your house location — on a 1950s era map and plan. See a scrapbook showing the history of Ski Incline (now Diamond Peak).
The historical society also is asking residents to bring historical items to donate to its collection. This may include historical artifacts, photos (print or digital), letters, drawings, locally created art, written memories and more.
