The Trapp family in Esko, Minnesota is officially the tallest family in the world with an average height of 203.29 cm (6 ft 8.03 in).

Krissy Trapp loves saying that she is the shortest person in the world’s tallest family. At 191.2 cm (6 ft 3 in), she definitely qualifies as very tall, especially for a woman, but she is indeed the shortest of her immediate family. Her husband, Scott, is a towering 202.7 cm (6 ft 8 in), while her two daughters, Savanna and Molly, measure 203.6 cm (6 ft 8 in) and 197.26 cm (6 ft 6 in), respectively. The youngest member of the Trapp family, Adam Trapp, is also the tallest at 221.71 cm (7 ft 3 in). Together, they have a combined height equal to the length of half a tennis court!

Whoa.  I know this city. 

I used to play them in summer soccer league and a few times some kids competing in slalom qualifiers at Spirit Mtn.\

Small world, Big People.  Must be in the water :rofl:

Interesting. In contrast, the most famous Minnesotan of all time - Prince - was one of the shortest men ever. :D

I remember seeing him before he got big.  I was working in theater downtown back then and would see him walking down the street to gigs at a club near our rehearsal space.  I remember seeing him regularly for a time and thinking to myself "whoa, that guy's guitar is bigger than he is."

It was probably digitally added afterwards to show how big they are compared to an average man.
