A Vacation in History The Richardson House is a magnificently restored Victorian home located in the high Sierra town of Truckee, California. Built in the 1880s when Truckee was a Wild West railroad town, the home was situated on a hill above town by a wealthy business man. Today, the home remains the centerpiece of Truckee as it overlooks the historic downtown and the Truckee River. Trains still pass through this once bustling railroad town, stirring echoes of a time that are sure to excite the imagination.
At The Richardson House, you're just a stroll away from fine restaurants and lounges. From skiing in the winter to fishing, hiking, and everything else under the sun in the summer. Whether you are in the mood for a relaxing evening or live music. Truckee has got you covered.
