Mrs. Lora Josephine Knight began building her estate in 1928 with as many as 200 workers employed to carve intricate designs by hand; the hinges were hand-forged as well. Two of the most unusual aspects of the castle are the sod roof and the fact that much of the house was built without benefit of nails or other fasteners. The castle contains many fine examples of Scandinavian furnishings and antiques. This site is accessed from Emerald Bay State Park , also known as the D.L. Bliss State Park.
