Sign Week: Day Five

Thursday, May 7, 2009


How about a little nostalgia for today's photo? This Greyhound Bus Station in Olympia opened in 1937 and now sits on the list of the top ten endangered buildings in the state by The Washington Trust for Historic Preservation. The Art Deco Society of the Northwest also would love to save the building for obvious reasons. After doing a little research it appears there is a good chance the bus lines will move about a mile away adjacent to Intercity Transit's transfer station. That way people getting off the Greyhound buses can easily switch over to the local bus system without having to walk 5 or 6 blocks. Not a bad idea. Now let's hope they make good use of the old building pictured above.
