It was an innocent-looking A-frame house.
In 2005, an illegal marijuana grow operation was discovered inside a cave underneath a house in Tennessee after the utility company discovered the house was stealing electricity. The mastermind and marijuana farm managers were arrested and convicted. Later, the A-frame house and another nearby home were destroyed by arson. The pot cave and property were auctioned by the state and purchased by a Wisconsin-based cheese maker.
This reminds me of a Prohibition-era speakeasy, but without the tuxedos and jazz band.
A secret passageway led from the house to the cave via this hydraulic door secret entrance.
The reason for the secrecy? The 400 – 500 marijuana plants.
A secret vertical escape tunnel.
The tunnel led to an escape hatch trap door concealed by a fake rock.
