This is the Minister’s Tree house, the largest tree house in the World. The man who built it, Horace Burgess, initially spent a few years at it but ran out of material. So in true American style he turned to God. God told him he’d supply the wood, if Burgess kept at it. Burgess then became a minister and 10 years later the house was finished. You couldn’t make it up.
A 100ft high structure, built without a blueprint, plan of any sort and spread over 10,000 square feet. It shouldn’t have been possible but it happened. This is a work of art, call it what you will but the act of making, creating, of been driven to build is an incredible feat. Look at it. Its extraordinary.
So, if you’re ever in Tennessee check it out- it’s open to the public – and let me know what it’s like.
