So, Julie and my son and I had an interesting day of exploring and I got some video and photos from this crazy tour we took of the Mystery Castle. Supposedly, in the times of TB as a death sentence, a man came from Washington State to AZ to get better from his TB. He built this insane castle for his wife and daughter. He died 15 years later and his family had not seen him in all that time. They came to the castle and if they agreed to stay there for a year, they could open up the trapdoor to the basement and see what was inside. Reporters waited excitedly when the one year was up. They opened it to find the deed to the place, $500 and a bunch of gold nuggets. Not bad. They were left with this insane mansion. In one area, there was a chapel where weddings were held and the brides, to make sure their groom was faithful, left a shoe. Some of them left both shoes-just in case! The other side of the chapel was a dividing room called "Purgatory" because on the other side of Purgatory was the saloon--a dark and spooky cool place. The place was as insane as bat shit, so I thought I'd give you a video that sort of shows how weird it was. Enjoy!
