Brief history of the Truckee Hotel

The Truckee Hotel was first established in 1873 as the American House and was known the Whitney House for decades. It was a major stagecoach stop on the Dutch Flat Wagon Road. The structure was rebuilt in 1909 after a major fire. After many renamings in the 20th century, it acquired its present name in 1976. The building was restored in 1992.
