Incline village began as nothing more than a steep grade up which a double track tram line hauled logs to a V- flume destined for the mines of Virginia City. Tram line and flume remains can be found in the area of Mill Creek. Due to the steep nature of the terrain, the loggers moving the timber called the area Incline and the name stuck. A small settlement was established to support the loggers throughout the end of the 1800’s. By the end of the century, the Incline area, as well as other areas around Lake Tahoe, had been depleted of their timber resources. Incline had been reduced to a clear-cut eyesore. The loggers abandoned the area and Mother Nature set about repairing the damage.

In the late 1950’s, 9000 acres were bought in the Incline area by the Crystal Bay Development Company for the purpose of developing a master planned community complete with manicured beaches, a ski area, and a golf course. The 1960’s saw the construction of this community that the Company decided to call Incline Village as a nod to its humble beginnings. In 1968, after the golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones had been constructed and both the elementary and high schools had been opened, the development changed hands and was taken over by Boise Cascade Corporation. The late 1970’s saw a renewed interest in the area as more people decided to live in Incline Village on a year round basis.
