4.5Seattle Public Library(2.224 reviews) - Impressive Library Thursday: 10:00 AM - 8:00 PM Architectural Buildings • Libraries
If you want to experience the entire library then visit on the weekdays. That will give further access to the book stacks on floors 6-9. The single escalator (in fluorescent yellow) would have been an interesting experience (see photo). On floor five (the mixing chamber) walk over to the overlook and take in the view down to the main floor and the surrounding glass and steel. For an intense color experience go to the 4th floor (meeting rooms) which was painted floor to ceiling in 13 shades of red.See more..
4.5Cedar Creek Grist Mill(91 reviews) - Beautiful spot Thursday: Architectural Buildings • Bridges • Scenic Walking Areas
Although I went when the mill itself was closed, this is a beautiful area to visit. There is a trail on the opposite side of the creek from the mill that is short, but gorgeous. It’s out of the way, so during the week when it’s closed, there are few, if any, people around. The covered bridge leading to the mill is very cool.See more..

After it closed in 1971, the Dayton Historical Depot Society placed the Depot on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974, then they refurbished the building and opened as a museum in 1981. Presently, the first floor of the depot has been re-created to appear as it did in 1899. The upstairs, where the Station Agent and his family lived, contains a Gallery that has rotating exhibits. The freight room houses a gift shop of Depot memorabilia, western history books, low technology games, and unique gifts for that special hostess or friend.See more..
