In the process of building, they became the largest employer in the city as they hired and trained locals to erect this incredible estate. They provided valuable jobs during the great depression and later during WWII, the estate was used by the military.
The thing I love about Atalaya is the fact that it was built with no blueprints, just the instructions Archer gave. It was said that he had designed the estate with detailed imagination "in his head."
It reminded me that I don't have to be a wealthy philanthropist to build something with my words. Prayers are eternal building blocks, more real than bricks and mortar and I too can build something great.
