A Gas Manufacturing Plant Was Built And Left Standing In The Middle Of Washington’s Largest City

Seattle’s Gas Works Park is one of the most popular places in the Pacific Northwest for celebrating the 4th of July. Known as the Seafair Summer 4ththe local Lake Union fireworks display has been voted one of the nation’s best shows by USA Today. 

But the park itself is about so much more than firework views (although they really are amazing). Gas Works Park holds the remains of the only remaining coal gasification plant in the United States, and the old buildings are now an iconic part of the city skyline.
