Puxsy Phil Statues

There are 41 large, decorated statutes of weather-forecasting groundhog Punxsutawney Phil hidden around town, all of them different. Super fun to come across them and try to find them all! You can get a map at the Chamber of Commerce.

It's now called Phil's Burrow. He can be seen from outside through the glass from dawn 'til dusk, or from inside in the children's section of the public library during open hours.

The whole town is filled with groundhogs. There are dozens of statues like this scattered around town.

The custom-modified and painted fiberglass figures are sidewalk survivors of a community art project in the early 2000s.
