A long-lost, eighteen-spired, pastel-colored castle built in a swamp out of rusted auto parts and mud by eccentric George Daynor. It was a tourist attraction for decades before it was destroyed. So fondly remembered that it's currently being rebuilt -- a work-in-progress by volunteers. Roadsideamerica.com Report...

Reconstruction of the Palace of Depression. Palace Of Depression

The Palace of Depression is under construction and some progress is being made.

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.

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.

The original Palace of Depression had been torn down and is in process of being rebuilt by volunteers. Got to meet the guy, and it's a wonder in the making. Will go back to check this out again. Very interesting concept and crew!
