Pacific Stone Company; Everett, Washington

This has to be one of the coolest signs ever! Located off of old Highway 99 in Everett, this is one of the many signs that dots the former major highway.

While the Pacific Stone Company was founded in 1999, this sign and the building date back to the 1950s. Originally designed and installed for Farmer’s Garden Center, the name on the sign was changed to match the new business’ name.

Harvey’s Lounge & Grill; Edmonds, Washington

While some sources claim that Harvey’s Lounge was established in 1910, most seem to agree that Harvey’s (at least at this location) dates back to the 40s or 50s. Located off of Highway 99 in Everett, its building was known as Monroe’s Tavern as early as 1949. Monroe’s was owned by a man named Harvey Robinson, so it is likely that the Lounge rebranded itself sometime in the next decade.
