Horace Burgess says he was given a sign from God back in 1993. He had a vision of an enormous treehouse, and was instructed to start building. Nineteen years later, Burgess has constructed the largest treehouse in the world. It sits in Crossville, Tennessee. This beast is 9,000 square feet, has ten levels, and is held together by approximately 258,000 nails. Atlanta-based photographer David Walter Banks was recently sent by Le Monde to capture photos of this grand edifice.
While there, Banks crossed paths with a youth group that stopped in to worship in the treehouse's sanctuary. He got some gorgeous images of these kids, Burgess, and the structure. Although I'm just a hundred miles down the road in Nashville, I still haven't stopped in to see this place. But I've been told that Burgess is one of the most kind and welcoming people you'll ever meet. Hope y'all enjoy these images as much as I did!
