Did you know?

Mail from the Post Office (USPS) is not delivered to Lake Village residents. They must pick it up at the Post Office. There is no charge for a Post Office box.

Douglas County, Nevada, home of Lake Village, was formed November 25, 1861 prior to Statehood.  Named for Stephen Arnold Douglas a US Orator and Statesman (guess that means he talked a lot, just like a lot of statesmen today).

Where did the name "Tahoe" originate? It came from the Washoe Indian word "Da-ow-a-ga".

Washoe Indians had discovered Lake Tahoe and called it: "Edge of the lake", Da-ow-a-ga on their native dialect. Explorers interpreted the name as “Tahoe”.  The lake had several names: "Mountain Lake" and "Lake Bigler".  In 1945 Lake Tahoe became the official name of this beautiful lake.  Click Here for more information.
