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.

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!!

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

I think it was cool the first time I saw this, but now I've seen it so many times it doesn't seem as cool, but it would be great to see if you were just passing through for the first time.

The town is small and it was worth driving downtown to see the tree growing from the top of the courthouse

The tree on the courthouse made it in Ripley's Believe it or Not. No one really knows how it got its start. A lot of speculation of how it got there. A lot of out of town people stop by and take pictures of it....More

If you're passing through Greensburg, take a moment to stop by the courthouse. The are some great historical landmarks and some nice local restaurants. Also there's a tree growing out of the courthouse roof!
