Emerald State Park is along the western shore of Lake Tahoe in California. In the center of gorgeous Emerald Bay is Fannette Island. The uninhabited piece of granite rises 150 feet accented with sparse timber and brush. On top are the remains of a “Tea House” where Mrs. Knight entertained friends. Then, in 1929, she commissioned a stunning, Scandinavian castle with 38 rooms and a staff of 15. Her former summer home is available for tours. She and her husband also financed Charles Lindberg’s solo trans-Atlantic flight.
