Built 1863

Lake Shore House was built and owned by Captain Augustus W. Pray who pioneered the settlement at Glenbrook and who was first to engage in any major lumbering operation in the area. He built and operated the first sawmill in the Basin. His hotel was the second hotel built in the Basin and is the oldest hotel building still standing at Lake Tahoe.
