“Bill” Soll Dewhurst and her three sisters grew up in the Caretakers Cottage on the I.W. Hellman Estate at what is now Sugar Pine Point State Park. Bill’s father Henry was the caretaker of the property until is sold to the State in 1965. One of her favorite memories is that of their domesticated pet deer, Mary.  Bill always knew that Mary was nearby because of the bell she had around her neck.  As shared with us during a visit with Bill at her home in Incline Village, on cold winter nights the family would let Mary inside their cabin to stay warm and entertain the children.
