It is the distinction in continuity that identifies tradition.
Emanuelo Sorbo On Liliana Grassi d'Architettura Volume 26-2005
Modern restoration is a discipline based on individual and collective values of life. It studies the monument, paying attention to  all of the historical layers, setting itself on a democratic plane of free choice in a historic space that is a public space, a piece of the site's culture, in which all of its inhabitants are trustees....

Those who work in restoration cannot but cultivate this dignity in an absolutely special way. --

Welcome to the virtual home of The Tahoe Foundation!

This is the place where we invite YOU to help us discover
how to preserve
Lake Tahoe's and the West's place in America's Histories 
and the World's Heritage !

Our story begins below................
Our name began as an acronym...Transit- Architecture- Heritage- Outreach-Education..
it has evolved into a new concept in architecture conservation and preservation planning education.
This has begun and will continue with students, art professionals, architects, planners, 
film cameras, drawings, and the Tahoe Method™ to engage folks in
telling their story about what they find important about the places 
and events which help us to define what home means for each of us, individually, as natural persons.

The Tahoe Foundation Registry Coming Soon!
In the early 1950's a typical evening's entertainment for Ripley kids was sitting in the bus shelter watching the traffic, in the vain hope that a sports car would go by, and once every six months we might see an Aston Maritn
or a Ferrari, which would make our day.
