Located at 117 First Avenue, the station is an example of novelty architecture. It was intended as 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 in, among other places, Teapot Dome, Wyoming. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and now serves as as byway visitor center

This historic gas station has been moved to a park-like setting and looks great. Restrooms available and just off the freeway. No gas just fun. Beware it's poorly marked so use GPS.

Worth a quick stop if you are in the Zillah, WA area. It is a well maintained icon of times gone by.

It is just kind of fun. It is just off the freeway from Sunnyside to Yakima. It is worth stopping to take a photo.
