Michael's Junk Castle was made of river rock, railroad track, concrete and many random items including an old motorcycle, bottles, trophies,and tools. The castle took 25 years to complete and many of the strange items used to construct the castle were donated by the many people that helped Michael Rubel build his castle. He referred to his helpers as "The Pharm Hands".
I have never quite seen anything as unique as The Rubel Castle. It contains 75 foot towers, a blacksmith area, an old printing press, a drawbridge, vehicles from the 1920s, and a model railroad in an old citrus packing house. The castle has even survived several earthquakes and the clock tower rings every half hour. Michael Clarke Rubel passed away on October 15, 2007 and he left his castle to the Glendora Historical Society. The castle is not open to the public but can be viewed by arranging a private tour.
