Solomon’s Castle

 

I recently had the opportunity to visit this unique place out in the middle of nowhere. Mr. Solomon was a very eclectic, humorous and creative artist transforming ordinary items into beautiful artwork.

Located in the tiny town of Ona in Hardee County, Florida, Howard Solomon’s unique home is three stories tall and covers 12,000 square feet. This medieval-style castle was built entirely by Solomon himself, utilizing reclaimed and recycled materials. The shiny exterior of the castle was made from discarded printing plates, and the “bricks” on the road to the front door were stamped onto the cement.
