For the Olympic Heritage Celebration Week Museum open house, we created a new 1960 winter Olympic movie comprised of newly edited Olympic footage. We included pre-Olympic footage from the US forest service as well as video clips from honeymoon videos the summer after the Olympics with view of the inside of Blyth arena. Watch the opening ceremonies and brief overviews of all the winter events. The video debuted at the very successful open house with a list of Tahoe dignitaries and multiple prior Olympians. ~~~~~~ You can watch the video as it is on the video link on this museum website. Thanks so much for everyone coming to the open house and stay tuned to the website for the next upcoming event!
