Mystery Castle is located on the north side of South Mountain, near the site of what was then the town dump. Gulley used salvaged materials, auto parts, junk, and other artifacts he found in the Southwest and in Mexico in the building of his home. In this photo, you can see that he embedded actual petroglyphs in the wall. In one part of the house you'll find some parts of his car built into the walls. In another, unusual glass blocks. On the floors, meaningful patterns of stones. There are 13 fireplaces in all. Outside, special bricks. I'm sure no two of those bricks are alike.

Running water? Electricity? Cable? Not until many years later.
