The Coral Castle

Jul 19, 2016, 03:24 AM

Is it just a quirky rock sculpture garden, or a megalithic mystery that baffles engineers and scientists to this day? It seems to be both. How was a diminutive man in ill health able to accomplish such a monumental feat all by himself? Ed Leedskalnin, builder of the Coral Castle in Homestead, Florida would never say and he took the answer with him. We know of a few reasons why he made The Coral Castle his life's work, but as for how he made it, we may never know.

Tonight's Quote:

“I know how the Pyramids were built.” — Ed Leedskalnin, Builder of the Coral Castle
