At the foot of South Mountain lies a curious dwelling built from desert rocks by Boyce Gulley, who came to Arizona to cure his tuberculosis. Full of fascinating oddities, the castle has 18 rooms with 13 fireplaces, a downstairs grotto tavern, a roll-away bed with a mining railcar as its frame, and some original pieces of Frank Lloyd Wright–designed furniture. The pump organ belonged to Elsie, the "Widow of Tombstone," who buried six husbands under suspicious circumstances.

The story was something like: The indians that owned the heiroglyphics or petrologryphics that are contained in the walls, call out because they miss them? I think its probably just coyotes at night. Still it would be e nifty idea to have tours at night time? They could even charge double admission but it would be worth it. It could be so mysterious to wonder around there at night with flashlights!!! It would be so mysterious, like the castle is
named! If the owner reads this please consider it! And post the new times here. Anyone that agrees post it too! Thanks!
