Did You Know That You Can Go See A Supersized Hat and Boots in Seattle?

2011-08-25

Want to see a classic American landmark in Seattle? It’s time that you take your car and drive to Georgetown. Rumor has it that even Elvis drove by the Hat’n’Boots in his Cadillac.

I would definitely call it Seattle’s best kept secret. The giant hat and cowboy boots are located in Seattle (south) at Oxbow Park in the Georgetown neighborhood. They are a recent addition to the park (they were moved there in December 2003). The boots used to be restrooms for the Texaco gas station in the 1950s (blue for the girls, black for the guys). And the red (although it’s more orange now) cowboy hat served as the office for the gas station. Lewis Nasmyth made the design for the Texaco gas station. Rumor has it that Elvis went to the Texaco Gas station in his Cadillac while filming “It Happened at the World’s Fair” in 1963.
