Know Lake County: The Tallman Hotel
7/21/2018, starts 2:00 PM

— In 2003 Bernie and Lynne Butcher bought an neglected nineteenth century hotel in Upper Lake and transformed it into one of Lake County’s premier resorts that brings new life to Upper Lake’s economy. The Butchers’ renovation retained the historic ambience of the hotel while introducing green technology that includes a geo-exchange cooling system. Bernie Butcher will speak about the Tallman restoration at the Lake County Library’s July installment of the Know Lake County lecture series on July 21 at 2:00 p.m. at the Lakeport Library located at 1425 N. High Street. The free program is open to the public.

                Butcher holds a BA in history, an MBA in international business, and an MA in U. S. history. Before becoming an innkeeper, he worked as a high school history teacher, basketball coach and as an international banker.

Butcher will narrate a slideshow on the history of the Tallman Hotel, placing the hotel and the town into historical context, and talking about the natural history of Clear Lake.

Refreshments will be provided by the Friends of the Lake County Library. The library is located at 1425 N. High St. For more information call 263-8817.

                The monthly Know Lake County lectures feature speakers from a wide array of organizations and disciplines, each representing some aspect of Lake County. Lake County PEG TV records each Know Lake County program, broadcasts it on cable channel 8, posts it on YouTube and creates DVDs that become part of the Lake County Library’s circulation collection.
