These Boots Were Made for Gawkin'

An iconic, if perplexing, Seattle landmark, the Hat and Boots date back to 1953, when Seattle artist Lewis Nasmyth created the oversize accessories for a Western-themed gas station in Georgetown. The 44-foot-wide hat and 22-foot-high boots were an instant hit, but with the coming of Interstate 5 in the 1960s, business slowed. When the gas station closed, Georgetown residents came together to save the hat and boots, which now have a new home in Oxbow Park. The small neighborhood park also features a playground and community garden, aka P-patch. If you’re in Georgetown, stop by for a photo.
