SEATTLE — On the Fourth of July, Smith Tower will be lit up in red, white and blue to mark Independence Day and the iconic building's 100th birthday.
The 42-story tower was the tallest building west of the Mississippi until the Space Needle was erected in 1962. It cost $1.5 million to build and was named for New York tycoon Lyman Cornelius Smith, who owned $4 million worth of Seattle property in 1914.
