This historic piece of architecture is a place like no other. Very unusual components make up Mystery Castle, and visitors are welcome to see it for themselves.

Mystery Castle is situated in the Phoenix, Arizona region, and you can tell by the name that it is quite the unique place. The Mystery Castle is a relic in this state, built in the 1940s by a man named Boyce Gulley after he was unfortunately diagnosed with a terminal illness. He 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 move in!

For many years Mary Lou and her mother provided tours of this truly odd structure. The castle consists of 18 rooms, 13 fireplaces, and finally received running water and electricity in the 1990s. Boyce built the castle out of anything he could find. This included parts from cars, stones, and pretty much anything form a junk yard. He held it all together with cement, mortar, and goat’s milk! Guests traveled from all over to see this one-of-a-kind building. A non-profit organization owns the Mystery Castle now and still provides tours from Thursday to Sunday in the months of May to October to anyone who wants to come by and see this unparalleled structure.
