House on the Rock

Currently the house is dark and gloomy. But if, like me, you were one of the original visitors to house, it was bright, cheery, and amazing. All the currently covered windows were once uncovered, like those in the Infinity Room. Then Jordan began collecting stain glass lamps and such. You can't really see the beauty of those in sunlight, so Jordan boarded up most of the windows.

House On The Rock

This is the closest glimpse into the mind of a megalomaniac that you'll ever have. At first you'll wonder why admission is so expensive, but by the end you'll wonder why it's so cheap.

If only all of the world's megalomaniacs used their powers to build tourist attractions like House on the Rock....

House On The Rock

Not at all what I expected. Dark and somewhat disturbing. The original owner must have been an odd fellow. Allow a few hours for this stop.
