Roadside Attraction: World’s Tallest Filing Cabinet [PHOTO]
When I travel somewhere, I like to see the strange and bizarre instead of what people put in travel books. This past weekend, I took a quick trip to Burlington, Vermont and saw a roadside attraction you may not have known is only a few hours away.
When I went to Rome, I saw the "World's Best Rated McDonald's," in London I went to 221B Baker Street for Sherlock Holmes' house, and if you've driven the East Coast and not stopped at South of Border, you can't say you didn't know it existed.
My recent trip to Vermont took me to something similar, the "World's Tallest Filing Cabinet."
According to Atlas Obscura, the cabinet was built in 2002 by an artist named Bren Alvarez. The real title, “File Under File Under So. Co., Waiting for…” cabinet is made up of 38 drawers, each representing the number of years of paperwork that he accumulated while working on the project "Southern Connector." The connector was intended to connect Interstate 89 to downtown Burlington in 1965 but is still in limbo.
If you want to see the World's Tallest Filing Cabinet, you can find it on Flynn Avenue Burlington, Vermont. It's honestly completely out of the way from everything and seems really random but it's pretty interesting- covered in names and stickers from the many people who have visited before you.
