Attention to Detail – 2012

Attention to Detail – 2012

Having stood the test of time for almost a century and a half this building located in Belgium will eventually find a new use and be around for at least another 150 years.  With its neo-Gothic architecture this building and its attention to detail was a pleasure to visit.  The intricately cut stonework visible throughout the building truly was a sight to behold.

Horace Burgess’s Treehouse of The Minister’s Treehouse (Crossville, Tennessee)

ADDRESS: 364 Beehive Lane, Crossville, TN 38571 

COORDINATES: 35.985300, -84.994433

Horace Burgess, one of Crossville’s local ministers, alleges that he was praying in the year 1993, and during that prayer, he was told by God, “If you build a tree house, I’ll see that you never run out of material.”

After receiving that message, Burgess began building a treehouse to serve as a church where he could deliver the Lord’s message. The treehouse ended up as a 97-foot-tall treehouse supported by a live 80-foot-tall white oak tree with a 12-foot diameter trunk. The treehouse also relies on six other oak trees for support. Although there is no Guinness World Records category for the largest treehouse, it is often referred to unofficially as the world’s largest. The treehouse served as a church, and when not in service a basketball court. (See basketball hoop towards the back in the last photo.) 

In 2004, fire marshalls shut down public access to the structure as it did not comply with fire safety codes. Horace said “I built it for God, and God watches over it. He’s protected everyone for all these years” in response to the shutting down of the church. Since Horace stopped construction in 2005, the structure has been immensely vandalized with graffiti. (Some of it praising God, to which Horace responded, “I don’t know how to take that.) "I have to remind myself that it is a tree house,” said Horace, who feels that it somehow causes people to act like children. “That’s why I’ve never prosecuted anyone for bustin’ the stuff up.”

There have been no deaths reported at the treehouse, nor any near it. Despite this, many feel extremely uneasy upon exploring the treehouse; almost as if they are being watched. Horace himself called the church a “haunted house” that is “possessed by the Holy Ghost.” 

*I took these with my new camera, hope you all enjoy! I do believe that I’ve made a post about this treehouse before if so enjoy it again! Happy exploring.
