Seeing this was a nice quick detour. I like all the stickers that were put onto the thing, but it is very rusty. Overall, it's a nice photo-op. 5 minutes tops.

We happened upon the WTFC on our way to Switchback Brewing’s taproom on Flynn Ave. and had to stop to take a photo. Excellent rating = a fun oddity that helps make Burlington a unique place!

Don't expect something out of the extraordinary but I like the unusual aspect of the road side art! I would not recommend a detour but if you plan to go to Oakledge Park where to can also find the Burlington Earth Clock, why not stop...More

This is an interesting piece of art, but it's looking quite weathered. And, it's on a really remote side street in town.

This is a funny visit. it's easy to get to right off the main road so it will not take you long to stop by.

Had a little window of time to kill and was in proximity, so I went by to see this crazy thing today. If you take a look at the amazing number of pictures of this that people have posted here... well, then you've seen it....More

It's cool, but it's just a bunch of filing cabinets piled up. The bottom ones are full of graffiti. It's a good stop for a few pictures, but that's it.

There’s no plaque or sign or anything with information as to why it’s there and what it represents. Also there was a swamp around it and broken dishes. I love the filing cabinets but come on Burlington, take some pride in your odd sites.

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