The Famous Fremont Rocket
Seattle tourist attractions--exploring the Fremont neighborhood
Having a life-size rocket bearing the "official crest" of Fremont and ready to head to the heavens seems perfectly at home in the center of Fremont's business district. This was a 1950 cold war rocket fuselage attached to an abandoned war surplus store. It was purchased by the Fremont Business Association, restored to some of its former glory, and mounted to a building in 1994. A sign beneath the rocket tells the story of the rocket.
