Phil's Burrow.

Groundhog Zoo: Home of Punxsutawney Phil

The glass along the outside viewing area is kind of hard to see through. Would recommend going inside while library is open.

Phil's Burrow.

Groundhog Zoo: Home of Punxsutawney Phil

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.

Groundhog Zoo: Home of Punxsutawney Phil

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

[Paul Kasel, 09/03/2017]

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