800 East Mineral Rd, Phoenix Arizona 85040
The Mystery Castle is located next to the South Mountain Park and features 18 rooms, 13 fireplaces and is furnished with Southwestern antiques. The 18-room, 8,000-square-foot castle was built by Boyce Luther Gulley between 1930 and 1945 to satisfy the fairy-tale fantasies of his young daughter, Mary Lou. Its imaginative construction makes for an entertaining visit and a rare glimpse of old Arizona. Mary Lou still lives there, conducting tours and recounting how her father filled the castle with antiques.
The Mystery Castle is open Thursday through Sunday from 11:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.
