    History of Incline Village

    Once upon a time, there was a lovely azure blue lake, surrounded by a lush forest. When Mark Twain first saw
    Lake Tahoe he remarked that “surely this is the finest view the world affords.” Lake Tahoe’s first residents were
    the Washoe and Paiute Indians who lived and fished along its shores. As time passed and civilization moved
    West, settlers paused in passes to the North and South to marvel at the color and clarity of this magnificent body
    of water. Incline Village slept through the Lake’s early development, as the centers of activity in the early days
    sprang up at South Lake Tahoe, Glenbrook and Tahoe City.
    In the mid-1800s, lumber interests discovered the Nevada North Shore as an excellent source of lumber for the
    Washoe Mines and at this point began methodically logging. By 1897 Incline had been left a sea of stumps, with a
    maze of crumbling flumes and rotting log chutes.
    In the early 1900s visitors to Lake Tahoe spent glorious summer holidays in the vacation paradises of
    Glenbrook and Tallac to the south. A one-lane road connected the North and South shores and in the 1930s
    summer homes were built in the area of Incline Beach. Incline was little more than a wide spot in the road during
    the ’30s, 40’s and ’50s, with only summer homes and a trailer park to distinguish it. Year-round
    residents were few and those who remain today tell stories of wild winters, food shortages, and isolation.
    In the late 1950s, Crystal Bay Development Company acquired 9,000 acres in Incline Valley and immediately
    began plans for a new Incline Village, a modern, carefully designed residential and resort community on Lake
    Tahoe. By 1964, a new elementary school was under construction and several years later the community cut the
    ribbon at Incline High School. Incline was on its way. And that brings us to the Incline Village we have today,
    with signs of a healthy future in evidence around every corner.

    Be Bear Smart!

    Are you bear smart? Co-existence is a community effort and don’t forget that a fed bear is a dead bear and we
    should keep them wild. Black Bears are native to Lake Tahoe and the Sierra Nevada mountains. You may
    encounter a bear (even in town) because some bears have lost their fear of people. Black bears are wild animals,
    but if you take precautions, your chances of being injured are extremely low.

    Residential Trash Storage

    Best option: Lock your trash in an animal-resistant metal enclosure (Bear Shed/Bear Box).

    2nd Best Option: Keep your trash in an animal-resistant cart.
