"Designed and built by Alex Jordan of Madison, WI, the House is an architectural marvel perched on a 60-foot chimney of rock. Begun in the early 1940's, it overlooks the breathtaking panorama of Wyoming Valley. The 14-room House, sculpted atop Deer Shelter Rock, is the original structure of what is now an extraordinary complex of rooms, streets, buildings and gardens covering over 200 acres." In a nutshell the attraction is an enormous collection of mystical, unusual and often times, really weird stuff.

I really don't have a firm grasp on what this attraction is all about. From the literature I've read it seems to be an odd collection of just about everything. Curious? I know I am! So, come on, let's check it out together!
