Locals in Willow, Alaska refer to this towering building as the “Dr. Seuss House”, as the design very closely resembles structures you may see in Theodor Seuss Geisel’s illustrated storybooks. The building is believed to have been built by the original owner soon after a forest fire, and had a clear view of Denali National Park and Mount McKinley. When the surrounding trees recovered and started to grow, the view was obscured. The owner added a few more stories, and then continued adding floors for about a decade until it reached the 12 story building still standing today.
The building had been abandoned, but now has a new owner who has started renovations. Photographer Jovell Rennie recently visited the ‘Dr. Seuss House’ and captured these images of the tower.
