Coral Castle Museum
This mysterious monument, featuring a hand-carved castlelike structure and massive sculptures made from coral, has been drawing visitors since the 1940s. Edward Leedskalnin built it himself as a tribute to Agnes Scuffs, the woman who left him the day before their wedding. Leedskalnin spent a total of 28 years secretly carving more than 1,100 tons of coral rock at night. When asked how he did it, he simply told visitors he knew “the secret of the pyramids.” He would charge onlookers 10 to 25 cents to tour the grounds. Coral Castle was a work in progress, and Leedskalnin continued carving up until his death in 1951. Unfortunately, his sculpting secrets died along with him. Today the curious continue visiting Coral Castle, which landed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984. The mystique still surrounds Coral Castle, and its operators take advantage. On the first Saturday of each month, it plays host to Psychic Saturday with palm readers and fortune tellers.
