Edward Leedskalnin (January 12, 1887 - December 7, 1951) was a Russian-émigré of Latvian descent who designed and self-constructed Rock Gate Park, today called Coral Castle, a walled park containing sculptures built entirely from 1,100 short tons (997,903 kg.) of self-quarried oolite limestone, first located on an acreage plot near Florida City and later transported to a larger plot near Homestead, Florida.
