Washington’s Smith Tower Is An Iconic Observatory And A Living Piece Of History

Whether you spend a lot of time in Seattle or trips to the Emerald City are few and far between, you’ve probably spotted the Smith Tower in the skyline, perhaps without even realizing it. While this historic icon is no longer the tallest building west of the Mississippi River like it was a century ago, it still stands tall and proud as an observatory, office space, speakeasy, and glimpse into the Pacific Northwest’s past.
