In The 1870s Trees Began Growing On The Roof Of This Indiana Courthouse And Nobody Knows Why

Okay, so, maybe this isn’t the first oddity in Indiana we’ve covered here at Only In Your State. We’ve covered places where gravity forgets how to do its job, places where ghosts and restless spirits may roam, places that have been abandoned and are shrouded in mystery, and much more – but we’re not sure we’ve discussed trees growing on the roofs of county buildings very often. In Decatur County, Indiana, there is an old courthouse where something strange has been happening since the 1800s – a tree, or family of trees – have made themselves very much at home…on the roof.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

So, what do you think? Is that weird, or is that weird? Do you know why this family of Mulberry trees has thrived here for so long? Tell us your theories in the comments.
