Local Couple Creates a New Teapot for Zillah

Posted: Updated:
ZILLAH, Wash.--If you drive along Interstate 82 you may notice something new.
Kay and Richard Eglet lived next to the historic teapot for many years when its home was along the Yakima Valley Highway. But a little more than a year ago, the City of Zillah moved the historic landmark to Stewart Park where it could be more visible to the public.
The Eglet's said they missed the giant teapot and decided they could make one of their own. Now, it stands tall as a metal replica but soon it will be filled with flowers and other decorations to make a gazebo.
The couple said they're excited to see the attention it gets like the historic teapot did.
"They thought this was a teapot state park so they would just wander through my yard and everything and I loved that," said Kay Eglet. "We'd be working out here, and we met a lot of people that way and I kind of miss that."
It certainly seems like people will be coming back to their yard. A couple families walked over wanting to get an up close look at the new fixture.
The city said they're excited Zillah is getting a new teapot and happy that the Eglet family created one of their own.
