Seattle, Washington Historical Events



1954
Home of the Largest Cowboy Hat and Boots in the World
The Hat n Boots gas station was built in 1954. It was to be part of a western-themed shopping center that was never built. Located on US Highway 99 in the Georgetown area of the city, it quickly became a large attraction with the highest gas sales in the state. The 44 feet in diameter hat was the office and the boots had the restrooms. Those boots were 22 feet tall! When I-5 was built in the early 1960ís, the station began declining sales and finally was closed down in 1988. The station sat in dis-repair for many years and now is becoming a landmark in the area. It was moved to the new Oxbow Park in 2004. The park opened in 2005 with the Hat and Boot as a focal point of the small park.
