The Wedding Cake House on the Hill always captured my attention. I have lived in Arizona for almost 30 years, and always wondered about it. A little research told me (thanks, Wikipedia!): that it was originally intended as a centerpiece for a resort and later a private residence, and is now part of the Phoenix parks system and is designated as one of the Phoenix Points of Pride. Although the castle had long been recognized as a city landmark, the deteriorated state of the grounds and the building left it unsuitable for use as a city park. After finalizing the purchase of surrounding properties, the city of Phoenix began an effort to restore the building and revitalize the gardens.
Stop by and tour the grounds if you can. There is a magnif9icent cactus garden.
