A few teenagers claimed to have witnessed his work, reporting that he had caused the blocks of coral to move like hydrogen balloons. The only tool that Leedskalnin spoke of using was a « perpetual motion holder ». Leedskalnin originally built a castle, which he named « Ed’s Place, » in Florida City, Florida, around 1923. He purchased the land from Ruben Moser whose wife had assisted him when he had a very bad bout with tuberculosis. Leedskalnin named his new place « Rock Gate » after the huge rear swinging gate he built into the back wall. He continued to work on the castle up until his death in 1951.

The coral pieces that are part of the newer castle, not among those transported from the original location, were quarried on the property only a few feet away from the castle’s walls. The pool and the pit beside the southern wall are quarries. The east and west quarries have been filled in. At Florida City, Leedskalnin charged visitors ten cents apiece to tour the castle grounds, but after moving to Homestead, he asked for donations of twenty five cents, but let visitors enter free if they had no money.
