“I like this place and could willingly waste
my time in it.” ♥♥♥  ― William Shakespeare     

<MINISTER'S TREEHOUSE, Cumberland Co, TN by Chuck Sutherland>

Located at the end of a gravel road in Crossville, Tennessee the nearly 100 foot tall Minister’s Treehouse is built around a supporting 80 foot tall oak tree. Six other trees are intertwined in the structure to provide support as well. It is unofficially the largest treehouse in the world.

As he tells the story, in 1993, Minister Horace Burgess was praying when God told him, “If you build a tree house, I’ll see that you never run out of material.” Inspired by this vision of God, the quiet minister set out to build the largest treehouse in the world.

Located just outside of Crossville, Tennessee, the 97-foot-tall tree house and church is supported by a still-living 80-foot-tall white oak tree with a 12-foot diameter base, relying on six other oaks for support.
For fourteen years, Minister Burgess has been adding to the tree house, spending only $12,000 and never running out of material. Over that time, the treehouse has grown to truly monumental proportions, and the Minister may have already achieved his goal of building the world's largest treehouse. Currently, his treehouse is 90 feet tall, said to contain 80 rooms, and stretch up to five stories, complete with a church and a bell tower. The bell tower at the top of the treehouse is equipped with oxygen acetylene bottles that, repurposed as bells, chime daily.

In true southern style, every story is fully surrounded by a deck. And there are no “Private Property,” “Stay Off the Grass,” or “No Climbing” signs: Burgess say the treehouse is God's house and everyone is welcome.
