San Francisco businessman I.W. Hellman purchased property at Sugar Pine Point in 1897, and completed a summer home on the site in 1903. His daughter, Florence Hellman Ehrman, inherited the estate. She and her husband Sidney Myer Ehrman hired Walter Danforth Bliss to design a new house, known as the Hellman-Ehrman Mansion (which is now part of the California State Park System), where they spent many summers entertaining family and friends.
