  • Would be very interesting to find some old articles on that Coral Castle, I wonder if there was anything ever written of it in the media?

    ---Also at the same time there was the other place in between Ed's Place and Rock Gate called Coral Castle... Coral castle was built inspired by Ed's Place and Rock Gate if I remember right... anyway

    The picture you posted was the original Coral Castle
    When I visited in December I went to all three sites.
    Originally I couldn't find Coral Castle, they filled the land with trees and buried the pond located next to the road. From a distance I noticed solid blocks which would have indicated a path or partition. I took pictures and will try an upload them here.

    The castle itself is of different design, however the blocks that are resting throughout the property is similar to Eds style.

    Ed's Place and the original Coral Castle are within walking distance.
    Ed's Place today is heavily shielded by trees and brush, the only place on the street like it. Odd

    Although I have seen postcards of Redland Coral Castle, there doesn't seem to be any advertisements made.
    This address: 31500 SW 187 Ave

    -This page advertises a book where he found the information. I own the book and it doesn't offer any additional information than what the page offers.
    The page has more photos, however the information regarding 1936(from the book) is inaccurate.

    -good photos are also found here

    I was able to locate a newspaper advertisement

    William A. Blizzard Age 62 - His address in the article matches with Redland Coral Castle
    Article from 1961
    Was this the original owner of the Redland Coral Castle?

    @anyone who can give it a shot

    There are still several videos or footage taken from when Ed was alive, and a few after

    Perhaps you will have luck with finding this video...

    1956
    Merv Griffin hosted a Miami based television series in the beginning of his career called " Going Places ". That year in July the title was called ' Rock Gate Park '

    July 21 1956

    I checked everywhere for a cache of ABC network archives from 1956 -no success

    I contacted Wolfsonarchive which is a part of Miami Dade College hoping they had footage. No success

    You can go here for small segments of Rock Gate Park / Coral Castle
    www.mdc.edu/archives/wolfson-archives/

    Perhaps I missed something or another source.
