Lake Tahoe is a national treasure that was discovered in 1844 by explorers John Fremont and Kit Carson. The Washoes, native indians in the area, name for Lake Tahoe is Da-ow-a-ga or edge of the lake. The explorers of the time changed the pronunciation to Tahoe. The lake had a few other names before finally receiving Lake Tahoe as its offical name in 1945. In the 1950's homes were accessable year round when adequate snow plowing began. The 1960 Winter Olympics brought national attention to Lake Tahoe and real estate boom began.
