Explore this unique piece of architecture built in the 1940s.

Mystery Castle is in the Phoenix, Arizona, region and is a peculiar living space built out of scraps and junk. The Mystery Castle dates back to the 1940s. Boyce Gulley moved from Seattle to Arizona to build the Mystery Castle for his young daughter, Mary Lou. When Boyce passed away in 1945, Mary Lou and her mother inherited the Mystery Castle and decided to live there for a time. In later years, Mary Lou and her mother used to give tours of this genuinely odd structure.

The castle has 18 rooms, 13 fireplaces, and was retrofitted to have running water and electricity in the 1990s. Boyce built the castle out of anything he could find, such as car parts, stones, and other things you would see in a junkyard. This one-of-a-kind building is extraordinary and still provides tours. You can see the inside of the Mystery Castle between 11 am and 3:30 pm Thursday through Sunday from October 1 through May 30. Admission rates are $10 for adults and $5 for children ages 5 to 12.
