Curious sightseers stop at Vikingsholm castle to peer into the 38-room mansion. The castle located on Lake Tahoe's Emerald Bay was built in 1929 and is inspired by Scandinavian castles, churches, and peasant homes. Thousands of dollars raised by the Sierra State Parks Foundation and California State Parks Foundation will be used to refurbish the historic building.
