Palace of Depression.

Palace of Depression
Long-lost, eighteen-spired, pastel-colored castle built in a swamp out of rusted auto parts and mud by eccentric George Daynor. A tourist attraction for decades before demolition, so fondly remembered that it's being rebuilt by fans. Roadsideamerica.com Report...

I keep tabs on the Palace and shot a picture to show the progress.

Advances since 2014. When the spires go up we'll know this is close to rebirth of the Palace of Depression. George Daynor took years to build the original palace back in the 1930s.

The Palace of Depression Reconstruction Association continues to recreate the fabled roadside structure, with current forecasts that it will be done in a few years. When completed, on property now owned by Vineland, there will also be a visitors center.

I've been keeping tabs on the rebuilding by visiting about once a month, and there is progress there! I've been in the "cellar" and the place is taking shape.

[Jon, 08/20/2011]

It's great that Team Depression is still plugging away... though it doesn't help their progress when they have to fend off vandals who come in the middle of the night to steal or smash.
