Tunnels below ground connect all parts of the building. There are 18 fireplaces and 5 kitchens. Rugs were made on the island of Minorca and pottery came from Italy. There is as much cement below ground as above, 60 carloads of 1,000 sacks each. The Castle was built on ground that was found not belonging to Johnson.
