It is just kind of fun. It is just off the freeway from Sunnyside to Yakima. It is worth stopping... read more

On the list of historical sights to see is this unique teapot shaped gas station that has been preserved for future generations in Zillah...an ode to the mid-nineteenth trend of building these wonderful sights along our highways.

We had no idea the teapot dome gas station was part of a major political scandal in the 1920s. I thought our political dysfunction was recent. Overall this was a neat thing to see right off the interstate for 5-10 minutes. They had bathrooms and...More
