Kitchen-Dick Road is a short local property access road near Sequim, Washington, on the Olympic Peninsula. It begins at US 101 and extends north for about 3¼ (5 km) toward the Salish Sea, ending at a county park. Though the road is rather minor, it is fully signed from US 101, drawing attention to its unusual name. The bizarre combination of words is actually just the names of two local property owners, W. Dick and D.B. Kitchen. (For photos and historic maps of the road, be sure to check out GribbleNation’s Kitchen-Dick Road blog post.)
We’ve recreated one of the signs pointing the way to Kitchen-Dick Road for you to enjoy at home. Our replica is an exact copy of one of the signs found along US 101 while approaching the road. (That sign also directs travelers to Kirk Road, which we’ve left off of our replica, in the interest of making a better display piece.) The originals of these signs often go missing from their posts, leading the local police to keep a closer eye on them. With our replica, you can get a fantastic display piece without running the risk of an encounter with law enforcement.
Our Kitchen-Dick Road sign is flat printed on heavy 14-gauge steel. This is a non-reflective sign, with a glossy coating guaranteeing it will serve as an excellent display piece for years to come, no matter whether you install it indoors or outdoors. We’ve made it available in two sizes, 36 in. × 9 in. and 48 in. × 12 in. Both sizes include two convenient mounting holes. (Looking for a sign for some other road, whether it be in Washington or somewhere else? We’re happy to help! We make custom road signs for pretty much every country, city, and state.
