Spherical Building in Yucca a Monument to Failed Real Estate Project
Some say it looks like a giant ping pong ball, a golf ball sitting on a tee, or a space ship. Whatever you think it looks like, one thing is certain: this lonely building looks out of place in the Arizona desert.
Nicknamed the Golf Ball House, the structure was built in the 1970s as part of a failed real estate project. It was meant to serve as a luxury bar and nightclub for a residential development that never came to be.
New owners revived the structure years later and renamed it Area 66. Tourists who come to view the building are met with small aliens and other curious objects. You can’t take a look inside, but it is a great photo op for travelers passing through the area.
The home is 3,400 square feet and is being remodeled to serve as a museum.
Area 66 is located off of exit 25 on Interstate 40, near Kingman.
