Zillah's iconic teapot dome is on the move
ZILLAH, Wash. -- Zillah's historic teapot dome moved to a new home today. The old gas station re-located along First Avenue next to the Civic Center.
Zillah is refurbishing the Teapot and plans to turn it into a visitor's center.
It was built in the 1920s as a reminder of the "Teapot Dome Scandal" surrounding former President Warren Harding's administration.
Action News spoke with one woman who remembers the old teapot in its days as a gas station.
Reporter: "Did you ever visit it when you were younger?"
"Always, Always! You'd stop and get gas and get a soda pop," said Gail Lee. "It's really exciting that it's moving."
Project engineers say the project will cost about 500-thousand dollars.
Zillah got federal money to pay for the move and renovation.
The new visitor's center is expected to open in May.
