Seattle Tourist Attractions--Downtown Architecture
1910 Renovation 2006
1305 Fourth Avenue
This beautiful Beaux Arts building was originally a physician and dental office building. Its most outstanding feature is the group of terra-cotta Native American heads that gaze out at the city from their perches near the top of the building. The heads make excellent subjects for photographs. One of the original heads was saved when a part of the building was renovated and the head is on display near the Seattle Visitor's Bureau desk in the lobby of the Washington State Convention Center. The Cobb Building was converted to apartments in 2006.
