I've seen pictures all over pinterest of what they call the Dr. Seuss house in Alaska and since we were there we decided to check it out. Everything online says that you can't go up to it but I thought I'd be able to see it from the driveway and that alone would be worth the drive. But I was wrong, you can not see it from the driveway at all. You can see the top couple of stories from a distance at the freeway and that is it. The internet has all kinds on wrong information about this house and the one major one is the address. I used coordinates from the internet that took us to the wrong spot. The only reason we found the house at all is because we stopped and asked a few locals.
We were lucky enough to "know a guy" who took us all the way to it.
It was so crazy because once you get close you cannot see it at all until you are about 100 feet away. It sticks up so tall (185ft) that you think you would be able to see it from anywhere, but that isn't the case. Maybe in Winter you can see it better, but once you are next to the trees you cannot see it until it is right in front of you. The above picture was our first view.
Once it is finished it will be opened to the public but for now the property is not even open to the public. We were so lucky to get to go inside.
Once inside you can see it has a wrap around porch thing, you can't tell from the street because of the plywood. It is going to be amazing when finished!
This next picture shows the basement, which leads to a secret passage and a tunnel to a secret bunker!
What was going to be a wasted 2 hour drive turned out amazing! The local news did a story on it so if you want more information on it I'd go here. Most of what I read online is false.
