Built in 1929 at a cost of $286,000, "Aimee's Castle" is a 14-room, 5,000-square-foot hilltop mansion that still graces Lake Elsinore.
Situated off Lakeshore and Riverside drives, the famous dwelling was constructed for evangelist Aimee Semple McPhearson who lived at the opulent residence until 1939.
After her move, McPherson died in 1944 from an overdose of sleeping pills. Her lavish life and tragic death have inspired countless rumors of paranormal activity, tunnels and catacombs in the mansion.
Thanks to local historians, the house remains in perfect condition.
