The Statue of Lenin

Seattle tourist attractions--exploring the Fremont neighborhood

The Fremont Statue of Lenin


The impressive statue of a determined man strolling through life overlooks the intersection of Fremont Place in the heart of Fremont.  When you discover that it is a statue of Lenin, then you realize that he fits in perfectly with Fremont's eccentricity.  The statue was purchased by a local Seattle artist who was visiting Slovakia and brought it back to his studio.  The artist died before he could resell the statue for scrap.  The statue became a white elephant and it somehow ended up as a citizen of Fremont.  Figure this one out.
