The world's tallest thermometer

The world's tallest thermometer is a landmark located in Baker, California, USA.

It is technically an electric sign, rather than a tall thermometer; however, it exists as a tribute to the record 134 degrees Fahrenheit (57 degrees Celsius) recorded in nearby Death Valley on July 10, 1913.

It stands 134 feet tall and is capable of displaying a maximum temperature of 134, both a reference to the temperature record.

History

Approved by San Bernardino County by Planner Nancy Sansonetti, it was built in 1991 by the Young Electric Sign Company of Salt Lake City, Utah.

Location

The world's tallest thermometer is located adjacent to the famous Big Boy Restaurant and is visible along Interstate 15 in Southern California's Mojave Desert in Baker. Along the interstate, the landmark is visible from three different sides.
