BRYAN - The biggest gingerbread house in the world has been constructed at the Texas A&M Traditions Club, located at 3131 Club Dr. The house at Traditions Club is 60 feet by 42 feet and is 20.11 feet tall at its highest point.

The GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS adjudicator, Philip Robertson, was there November 30, 2013, to verify the record-breaking 39,201.8 cubic-foot structure.

The previous record holder was 36,600 cubic feet and was built inside the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota.

The house will be up until December 14 and open from 6 p.m. until 10 p.m., Tuesday through Sunday.
 
Santa will be available for photos at this time. Admission is $3 for adults and $2 for kids. So far, the house has raised in excess of $150,000 for St. Joseph Level II Trauma Center.
