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.

We lucked out with great weather, and an unexpected town square festival and food tents. Clean and orderly antique store was fun.

Downtown Greensburg, Indiana is a very clean town with lots of old, interesting buildings. Don't miss the court house that has a mulberry tree growing from the courthouse tower. Many historical buildings including the courthouse.

Came to Greensburg to help a family member with moving and came into town to eat at Stories. Ok...so a bird pooped a seed in the gutter of the clock tower and it took root. You can clearly see the gutters are growing weeds, etc. it's about time someone cleaned all that stuff out and repaired the roof before more... More

The Tree in the Courthouse Tower is a real treat. The courthouse has been well preserved, updated, and handicapped accessible. The grounds are lovely. Our Farmer's Market is located on there on Fridays in the summer months. It is a great place to congregate.

Married into a family from this area. Seems the locals really like their courthouse tree. It is certainly something you don't see everywhere, but don't expect a towering redwood or anything. The tree is pretty small -- but it is still a tree growing off of the top of a clock tower. Worth a detour off the Interstate if you... More

My dad brought me by the courthouse on a roadtrip when I was 13. I was amazed by the sight of a tree growing in the tower of the courthouse back then and I'm still amazed by it today. An unusual sight worth visiting Greensburg for.

I only go their to pay my property taxes,It has been up dated ,but the tree in the tower is still their. Their use to be big old trees around the square,but the birds really made a mess on the walks,so they cut the trees down ,and planted smaller ones.
