Carson City businessman Abe Cohn ran a curio shop in Tahoe City in the early 20th century. Here famed Washoe basketweaver Dat-So-La-Lee worked on and sold her baskets during the summer months. The shop was located in Hurley's Cottage, located on a spit of land in Tahoe City. This was on the north bank of where the Truckee River leaves Lake Tahoe.
