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

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.

As an appreciator of kitschy roadside oddities, I love the World’s Tallest Filing Cabinet. You could spend 2 minutes to snap a shot for your insta, or 2 hours speculating, as I did... “What is housed in those many, many drawers? Could it be the...More

This is definitely a quirky stop while visiting Burlington. Not much other than stopping to take some pictures, but cool all the same.

We took our friends from New York there and it was hilarious to see their reaction to it. They really seemed to think it was a really cool thing.

I'm not really sure that this is actually the world's tallest filing cabinet, but it IS very tall. There is no plaque or information anywhere about it... I didn't know that it claimed any kind of fame until someone mentioned its "official" title to me....More

It's an amusing attraction if you happen to be in the area. Worth a 5 minute detour on the way to someplace else.

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