THE MYSTERY SPOT


This roadside attraction established in 1941 is the first and most significant example of its type in California, a “tilt-box” or “gravity house” roadside attraction that gained popularity in the mid-twentieth century. Established by George Prather, the Mystery Spot became a popular roadside attraction under the stewardship of Prather’s son Bruce in the late 1940s and 1950s.
