When Elias J. "Lucky" Baldwin died in 1909, he left his real estate holdings in the Tahoe Basin to his daughter, Anita Baldwin. A few years later, Anita gave her daughter Dextra McGonagle this six-acre lot on the shore of Lake Tahoe.

Dextra had a beautiful house built here in the popular rustic style in 1924. The architect was told to "spare no expense." She used the estate as a summer home, an extension of her social life in the city. Dextra spent more and more time in Lake Tahoe in her later years, until her death in 1967. Two years later, the title was relinquished to the federal government.
