The history behind 490 Gonowabie –

Introducing one of our newest listings, by Darin Vicknair, is 490 Gonowabie. This unique property was initially the site of a Washoe Indian commercial fishing operation in 1914. Native Americans used streams, tributaries, and lakes in Northern Nevada, including Lake Tahoe, as a supply for food. Tribes such as the Northern Paiute, Western Shoshone and Washoe Native Americans thrived off of what Lake Tahoe had to offer. They would catch and dry their fish, such as trout, and store them for cold winters. This property was built to help Washoe tribes farm fish for food; however, in 1917, commercial fishing was banned due to the declination of fish. While fishing for sport is still allowed, officials have released the order, a couple of years ago, to allow crayfish to be harvested.

Your family can be a piece of history! Read below to learn more about what this property can offer.
