Originally these boots were the restrooms for a gas station a few blocks away at the corner of Corson Ave. S and E. Marginal Way. The gas station eventually closed down and soon neglect took it's toll. The residents of Georgetown began a campaign to save this kitschy, retro piece of Americana. Eventually both the Hat n' Boots were moved to the new park with a P-patch and playground. The Boots have been restored and the Hat is awaiting its return to glory.
