The Inside Of This Huge Tree House in Tennessee Will Blow Your Mind
Editor’s note: As of late 2019, the treehouse is no longer standing. Please enjoy the photos below as a reminder of this remarkable structure.
To some, the woody heights of a tree house is a dream that’s left in childhood. To Tennessee? It’s just a challenge. Check out the amazing Minister’s Tree House, located in Crossville. Peaking at 97 feet and built around an 80 foot white oak tree by Minister Burgess, this place is rife with history and a feast for the eyes. Take a look!

Although the massive structure is impressive, tours have been closed by the State Fire Marshall at the current time for the safety of all visitors. People have been known to hop the fence, but be warned – the tree house is rickety after years of use, and you trespass at your own risk. What about you?
