Zillah, Washington: Teapot Dome Gas StationBuilt in the 1920s as a political statement. It looks like a teapot, to remind travelers of corruption in the Warren Harding White House. Restored and moved to new location in July 2012, it's been outfitted with non-working vintage gas pumps and serves as a visitor center.
Shaped like a large red and white teapot, the station isn't currently pumping, but it is a National Historical Landmark. Roadsideamerica.com Report...
Visitor Tips and News About Teapot Dome Gas Station
I'm so glad I pulled off the road to see this little gem! It's as spiffy as advertised, lovingly buffed-up with its own well-paved parking lot. I was charmed by the great care taken in preserving the original (no-longer-functional) pit toilet building original to the site.
Though the teapot was closed for the day, I could see the interior was as clean and orderly as the exterior, with a tiny pot-bellied stove on the planked wood floor and framed photo portraits of some dignitaries on the walls.
It's really encouraging to see that some wonders are being saved from ruin.[Pegrini B, 10/02/2014]
There was a sign on I-82, but when I got off the exit I didn't know where to go to find it. Follow the road to Zillah -- it's close to the cemetery.[Marcelle Davis, 09/02/2012]
The move of the Teapot Dome Gas Station into the town of Zillah will be completed today. Then the re-assembly will begin and it will be turned into a visitors center.[Eldon W, 03/20/2012]
