Tea Pot Dome Gas Station in Zillah, WA

This scurrile gas station was built in 1922 and was operating for about 80 years. Eventually, in 2007, the city bought the gas station in order to protect its historical value and plans to move it to the town center and re-open it as a tourism visitor center.

It was named after a scandal in which the cabinet under President Harding was said to be involved. The government owned an oil field (name: Tea Pot Dome) in Wyoming and leased it under obscure circumstances to private oil companies.

Zillah, Yakima County, Washington State, is a tiny town off Highway I-82. Take exit 54 and turn on Yakima Valley Highway. The gas station is located about 1 mile southwest of the town center.

The Tea Pot Dome is noted in the National Register of Historical Place. The Architect was Jack Ainsworth.
