“Quirky Attraction, great photo ops!”
Reviewed June 21, 2014

Love quirky things, this is definitely one. Found it via an app. This service station is a reminder of the Teapot Dome Scandal that rocked the presidency of Warren G. Harding and sent Interior Secretary Albert Fall to prison for his role in leasing government oil reserves. Originally built in US Route 12, when Interstate 82 was constructed near Zillah the station was relocated less than a mile down the Yakima Valley Highway. It was purchased by the city in 2007, rehabilitated, and relocated in 2012 to 117 First Avenue. If you are passing the area, then visit it for a pic at least.

“Fun stop!”
Reviewed May 7, 2014

This place is a cute piece of history! We were there on a day when the attendant wasn't there, so we didn't get any literature. The teapot building is adorable, as are the old houses. Fortunately there are nice new bathrooms on the other side of the parking lot. The little detour off I-82 to see it took less than 30 minutes!
