  • Under the north end of the George Washington Memorial Bridge in Fremont, Seattle, lives a giant hairy troll. Venture under the bridge and you’ll find him sitting in the dirt clutching a Volkswagen Beetle that he likely grabbed from the busy roadway above. He’s fairly docile these days and hasn’t moved in quite a few years, but at some point he might grow tired of being just another tourist attraction, and instead grab another unsuspecting motorist striking fear into the hearts of those who dare to cross the bridge above him.

    The 18ft (5.5m) troll first appeared under the bridge back in 1990 when local artists, Steve Badanes, Will Martin, Donna Walter and Ross Whitehead, sculpted him for the Fremont Arts Council. He’s remained there ever since, and back in 2005 the street he is on was renamed Troll Avenue in his honor, or perhaps in an attempt to appease him?

      • Got it. Error corrected. Thanks for the fix. As anyone who knows or reads me will know, my spelling and grammer isn’t about to win me any awards so I need all the help I can get, and I’m grateful for it. 🙂
