- Standing as a testimonial to the wealthy are the beautiful estates of the Baldwin, Pope and Heller families. These summer getaways for the upper crust were built at the turn of the 20th century. Dextra Baldwin built his estate in 1921. The museum inside houses Washoe Indian artifacts and Baldwin family exhibits. The Pope estate is now an interpretive center offering historic tours and a living history program in the summer. The Heller, or Valhalla estate, built in 1924, was the summer stomping grounds of the rich and famous. Appointments are necessary to visit the homes, but admission is free. Plays, Indian celebrations and other events are also presented at the site. Call for information.
