Truckee Tahoe Redlight Hostel


The Redlight building was first constructed in the 1880's. It was one of 3 hotels in the Truckee area. In the early 1920's it burned down and was rebuilt on the same foundation footprint in the late 1920's. Since then, it has had a few small additions to the main structure. It was a brothel at one time and has always served as some form of lodging. Now it is the Redlight.

The Truckee Hostel building from the 1880's when it first opened its doors as the Tahoe Saloon and Lodging House.
