A member of the executive board with the Pennsylvania Railroad and the American Sugar Refinery, Edward Collins Knight, Jr. could well afford a private hunt club and vacation home for his wife Marie Louise. At the time, most hunt clubs were off limits to women members, so Knight built this Art Nouveau style structure on Corolla Island during the mid 1920s. Located on North Carolina’s Outer Banks, Marie Knight was free to enjoy hunting and horseback riding in this remote setting.
