Dr. Peter Mires, historical geographer and Carson City resident, presents an illustrated lecture on the rustic architecture of the Lake Tahoe region. Material for the talk comes from his book "Lake Tahoe's Rustic Architecture." Rustic has become Tahoe's brand; its expression extends beyond homes and resorts to include myriad forms—churches, stores, restaurants, and a host of ancillary structures among them. Dr. Mires will focus largely on its Gilded Age—to—Great Depression heyday.
