1. The largest treehouse in the world
Crossville, Tennessee is home to The Minister’s Treehouse, which is unofficially listed by the Guinness World Records as the world’s largest treehouse. Inspired by divine intervention as most crazy southern structures are, Horace Burgess began building the 97-foot-tall treehouse in 1993, which would go on to have 80 rooms, porch decks on every storey, a church that doubles as a basketball court, and a bell tower, all fastened together by 258,000 nails. However, in 2012, it was closed to the public for fire code violations, which in turn violated and mercilessly crushed a huge chunk of our childhood dreams.
