This Roadside Attraction In Florida Is The Most Unique Thing You’ve Ever Seen
It was actually built around 1923, and the 10-cent admission sign reflects this. The mystery lies in how Coral Castle was built. You see, all of its materials were sourced, moved, and carved by one man (who was quite small in stature). This man was a Latvian immigrant named Ed Leedskalnin.
Heartbroken and deeply saddened, Ed set out on a lifelong quest to create a monument to his lost love that has become one of the world’s most remarkable accomplishments, originally called Rock Gate Park but now known as the Coral Castle.
Coral Castle in Homestead, Florida, is one of the most amazing structures ever built. In terms of accomplishment, it’s been compared to Stonehenge, ancient Greek temples, and even the great pyramids of Egypt. It is amazing – some even say miraculous – because it was quarried, fashioned, transported, and constructed by one man: Edward Leedskalnin, a 5-ft. tall, 100-lb. Latvian immigrant.
