When the Space Needle pierced the Seattle skyline in 1962, it became (at 605 feet) the tallest building on the West Coast—wresting that title from the Smith Tower, which had held the lofty designation (at 489 feet) since opening on July 4, 1914. Until that wasp-waisted whippersnapper showed up, it was the Smith Tower that beckoned tourists to Seattle, with an astonishing 42 stories, an observation deck and the exotic Chinese Room. The two white architectural icons now stand at opposite ends of downtown (bookending many newer, shinier, taller buildings), the one at the north flamboyantly futuristic, and the one at the south stately, harking back to a more formal age. A dead ringer for New York City’s Metropolitan Life tower (1909), ours was built thanks to funding from shotgun and typewriter magnate Lyman Cornelius Smith. Its standout feature is a Gothic pyramid cap (currently a killer private apartment). Although it doesn’t make it onto as many postcards as the Needle, the building has stood sentry for a century, holding steady even through the 7.1 magnitude earthquake of 1949.

The centennial festivities will be understated—a time capsule will be secreted away for another 100 years, and on July 4, visitors will be transported via old-school elevator (complete with attendant) to the observation deck for the original admission price: 25 cents. Open daily 10 a.m.–dusk. 506 Second Ave.; 206.622.4004; smithtower.com

About Smith Tower

Opened on July 4, 1914, Smith Tower has served as a symbol of growth and prosperity in Seattle over the last 100 years.  Located in the heart of Pioneer Square, this 42-story building was once the tallest west of the Mississippi, and remained the tallest building on the West Coast until the Space Needle was built in 1962.  Today Smith Tower provides office and retail space for over 40 local companies, welcomes the general public to visit and host private events in the Chinese Room & Observation Deck, and is even home for one resident in the pyramid at the top of the building.
