Watson House, Tahoe City.

An excellent example of pioneer life in the early 20th century, the Watson House was built by Robert Watson in 1909.

I used a sepia tone felt tip pen and Faber-Castell soft lead pencil to draw it.

The house stands on it’s original site, a couple of hundred feet up bank from Lake Tahoe’s north shore in Tahoe City. It currently serves as a local museum.

The Watson House was one of the first to have indoor plumbing in the high Sierra…so you didn’t have to freeze your ass peeing outside at 3:00am in January.
