Baron Cornelius Vandersim built his fortune through transportation and decided to flaunt his wealth and build this "Summer Cottage" on Knob Hill This "Summer Cottage will rival all of his neighbors being the largest and most opulent cottage on the Hill! He chose this land because of its location and the million dollar view of the ocean! Th view is what drove him to this site!
HE hired local architect ad friend of the family to build this palace. He uses local sandstone for the exterior and all detail work! Local craftsman worked on all the exterior detail work. No expense was spared to make his cottage rival all others! From the exterior detail down to the smallest details Cornelius wanted his cottage to rival all others.
