Vikingsholm

At Emerald Bay State Park - this is a striking structure known as Vikingsholm (accessible only on foot or by boat). In 1928, Mrs. Lora J. Knight, a wealthy Chicago widow, purchased this then-isolated site and instructed Lennart Palme, a Swedish architect, to design a home -- a fully detailed reproduction of a Norse fortress circa 800 A.D.
