About Incline Village, Nevada
Incline Village started as logging community in the mid 1800’s and take its name from the near vertical tramline up 1,400 feet to a V-flume. The flume ran across the mountaintop, supplying boomtown mines in Virginia City and Washoe Valley. Logging activity left Incline Village completely deforested and largely abandoned by 1897, so she took a long nap.
In the late 1950’s, Incline Village was awakened by Crystal Bay Development Corporation’s visionary master plan. The company purchased 9000 acres and began construction. Crystal Bay Development Corporation sold the last of its Incline Village interests to Boise Cascade Corporation in1968 and a new round of residential development was initiated.
