Long Description:
From the website: "The Truckee Hotel Opened in 1873...

At the time, it was called the American House. In 1875, Stewart McKay purchased the hotel for $2,364.71 and re-opened it as the Whitney House. The Whitney House served as a stagecoach and overland train stop for passengers. A brochure found from this era boasted "This is the best stopover place on the C.P. R.R. between San Francisco and Salt Lake." The brochure also advertised a stage visit to Lake Tahoe "...it only takes nine hours for a trip around the lake from Truckee." (visit link)
