Coral Castle

Description

The story behind Coral Castle is almost as interesting as the attraction itself. After his 16-year-old sweetheart gave him the brush-off, 26-year-old Edward Leedskalnin left his homeland of Latvia to explore America. In 1936, he ended up in Homestead, bought 10 acres, and kept himself busy constructing a small village created from coral rock. Using only hand tools, it took Leedskalnin 28 years to construct what you see, preserved forever as a National Historic Site. How the 5’1”, 100-pound amateur architect single-handedly maneuvered 1,100 tons of stone into place is a mystery no one has solved.
