Few People Know The Iconic Hammering Man Statue In Washington Was Actually Created In Connecticut
Visit Seattle, Washington and one thing will be abundantly clear: Downtown Seattle is rich with art and culture, prominently displayed in landmark buildings, statues, and sculptures throughout the city. Probably the most well-known landmark in Seattle is the Space Needle, a futuristic observation tower and restaurant designed and built for the 1962 World’s Fair. But did you know another one of Seattle’s most iconic landmarks was not even built in Washington?
Though Seattle’s Hammering Man got its start in Connecticut, it is one of Washington’s most iconic and important monuments. Proudly representing working-class laborers for more than 30 years, the Hammering Man is a symbol of pride and accomplishment. Check out Hammering Man outside the Seattle Art Museum and you will be in awe of its towering height and poignant message.
