Pyramid House, Wadsworth, Illinois

Jim Onan built this 24-karat-gold-plated, 17,000-square-foot house in 1977. Onan, who lived in the pyramid house with his family for a time, eventually added enormous statues to the pyramid’s lot (including a 50-foot likeness of King Tut) and lined his driveway with 80 stone sphinxes. The place was opened to paying visitors from 1978 to 1981, but it's now a private residence that sits behind closed iron gates and a moat.
