In the summer of 1937 the North Shore of Lake Tahoe was a busy place for construction and business activity. With the May 17th fire at the Cal Neva Lodge and its frantic rebuilding underway, another casino and business area was hardly making headlines. A small article in the Reno Evening Gazette noted a development being built that has lasted to this day.
The Ta-Neva-Ho began as a conglomeration of businesses that were intended to serve the rapidly developing community on the North Shore of Lake Tahoe. Long before the upscale development of Incline Village, the finger of land that juts into the North Shore of Lake Taho at the state line between California and Nevada developed first. In the 1920’s developer Norman Biltz constructed a building that served as a land sales office. This building became the Cal-Neva lodge in 1929 and hosted gaming even before it became legal in Nevada in 1931.
In the early 1930’s with the Cal-Neva Lodge and the Cal-Vada Lodge opening operating on the North Shore, the growing community was in need of business services. Seven businesses other than gaming were located in the block along the Ta-Neva-Ho gaming area. These included over the years a bank, drug store, bakery,several bars, furniture store and other gaming operations.
The Crystal Bay books lots of adventurous rock/funk bands with a tendency to lean towards original Jamband/Funk stuff, blues and tribute artists. This is actually THE place for Live music in Tahoe.
