Overview

Courthouse Tree occupies a unique place among cities of the world by reason of trees that are growing from the roof of its courthouse tower.The presence of these trees on the courthouse tower is just as much a mystery to the citizens of Greensburg as to those who look upon it for the first time.

This famous Courthouse, the tree 🌲 growing out of the Bell Tower, is being remodeled. This city is known for this anomaly, & well as is strolling around the square.

At present the courthouse is surrounded by scaffolding so the tree is hardly visible. However, Greensburg is a lovely old town and well worth a visit.

This is definitely not a destination stop, to see a tree only. It is however worth the stop through on any vacation if passing through to say you saw it. I would classify it as a classic roadside curiosity stop, like seeing the biggest ball...More

Unfortunately there was construction or renovation happening and the tree was barely viewable behind the scaffolding around it.

I love to add a bit of weirdness to our family trips. This place fits the bill. A tree growing out the top of the courthouse. Snap a pic and move on.

It is very strange to see a tree growing out of the roof of the courthouse!! We went to Stories Restaurant. It is across the street from the courthouse. Not a lot to see except the tree and a few shops around the town square.

I grew up close to Greensburg, IN. THEN I moved to Indianapolis, IN. If I tell anyone that I'm from south of Greensburg, IN they say...." ahhh, the town where the tree is growing out of the courthouse?" I say...YUP!!

I lived in Greensburg for years, and like has been said before, it's a sight worth seeing in the center of town at least once or twice! It's a unique claim to fame. I especially like seeing it in the summertime when the leaves are...More

A tree has been growing out of this courthouse for as long as I remember. It's a neat thing to see in person.
