They claim it's the tallest filing cabinet in the world, but it's actually only second or third. Lies!

To say I was disappointed would be an understatement... when I found out this was NOT included in the Seven Wonders of the World. Shame on the Swiss Foundation for excluding this breathtaking beauty. If you are planning a trip to Vermont, but did not...More

I love weird little road side things like this. Just fun, interesting, silly, and charming. If you love the American Road Trip, add this road side stop to your list. There isn't a whole lot going on right next to it, but it is very...More

A little bit of whimsy along Flynn Street. It will bring a smile to your face and maybe a chuckle. Get up close to it. It is rather clever. Best of all you are just steps away from an antiques market and Switchback Brewing.

Sure, you can say it’s just a tower of filing cabinets on a dirty, gritty all natural setting —but that’s like saying Stonehenge is a pile of rocks . Contemplate the artistic energy, the fabrication, placement , interactive nature of the visitor. Think of the...More

This is a pretty stupid item. It isn't the world's tallest filing cabinet, its a stack of filing cabinets(plural). If you find this thing appealing, I feel sorry for you. Perhaps a coupla brewskie's from down the street will help you out.

I happened to drive by this after a stop at a brewery. I would never go out of my way to see this. It’s a tall stack of file cabinets. There’s not much else to say.

If you are in the area, or going to a brewery nearby as I was then this is well worth the stop to look at and take a picture. It really is just a ton of filing cabinets stacked on top of each other. Only...More

About 40 feet tall. It is off to the side of a parking lot so it is somewhat easy to miss, but fun.
