The Chinese Castle

I got a tour of the red “Chinese Castle” today.  Easily the most iconic building in Jacumba, it sits perched up on a rock pile just south of town.  Its undergoing a process of rehabilitation, which wil probalby take several years.  The living room has an almost-level boulder for a floor.  An indoor pool needs a lot of work, but will be nice when its completed.
