George, Washington

The town no longer seems to get its own joke, but they have added a large George Washington head in front of the [Spirit of] 76 gas station.

Bust of George Washington.

George, Washington

Was smaller than I expected, but had fun seeing George's head, and was able to stand with him to get a photo.

George Washington - Martha's Inn

Sad to say, Martha's Inn has been gone for years. It wasn't much. I stopped once during a trip from Spokane to Seattle (or vice-versa) and never went back. It's been replaced by a Subway.

[Jim C, 08/23/2014]

Martha's Inn was the first business opened in George, Washington, a town created and named in the 1950s as a joke. We've received conflicting reports on the fate of Martha's Inn, but it does appear to be gone now.

Martha's Inn

There is no cherry pie available at Martha's Inn in George, Washington. Tried to order it on Washington's Birthday, and they didn't know what I was saying. Put on your marketing bonnet, people.

George Washington Bust

What an appropriate item. A bust of George Washington -- in George, Washington. Very cool!

[Connie from Seattle, 08/19/2013]

The big head is one of several copies of an original sculpted by Avard Fairbanks for the Bicentennial. Next to a gas station in George, WA is its best setting from our POV.
