Coral Castle

Coral Castle south of Miami, Florida is known for its huge pieces of coral in strange shapes. Ed Leedskalnin, a Latvian immigrant built it for his lost "sweet sixteen" sweetheart who spurned him and never saw the place. It is a wonder with huge stones quarried and moved by one man, with some huge stones, a nine ton door, balanced perfectly on pivots.

Since no one ever saw him work there is some mystery of how it was done. He said it only needs the same knowledge of weights and leverage that the Egyptians used to build the pyramids. Some suggest he used mysterious electromagnetic forces. Thus it was featured on an "In Search of" episode. This and Easter Island make two phenomena featured on "In Search of" that I have personally investigated. Perhaps a Bigfoot search or Bermuda Triangle cruise should be next.
