An old incinerator standing alone on property along Highway 84 near Highway 6 for years looked like a solitary, rusting tin soldier. Artist Mickey Pitcher was hired to paint the old incinerator, the tin soldier has come to life.
The owner of Smith Furniture Manufacturing Company wanted to be able to tell people seeking out the location to look for the soldier. Well, yes, it works. I can spot the soldier about 3 miles away.
It was easy to spot the 80-foot-tall Tin Soldier over there from Highway 6. You can see the picture I enclosed to show you all. It’s clear as crystal.
This solider stands at Smith Furniture Manufacturing Company parking lot. The sign says “No Trespassing”. You know I’m a risk taker so I went close up anyway.
The view from the US Highway 84.
I-35 exit 330B. Drive west 2.5 miles on Hwy 6. Take exit right toward US Hwy 84. Bear right at first right and then quickly turn right into abandoned parking lot just past Furniture Row sign. It can be viewed from parking lot at Smith Furniture Manufacturing Company.
The address is at 6000 Franklin Ave. Waco, Texas
