A post office in Renton, Washington has been renamed to honor Jimi Hendrix.
According to Rolling Stone, "both of Washington’s U.S. senators, Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell, supported Rep. Adam Smith’s bill to rechristen Renton Highlands Post Office as the James Marshall “Jimi” Hendrix Post Office.
The publication reports the bill passed unanimously last week. The post office is located less than a mile from the Jimi Hendrix Memorial in the Greenwood Memorial Park cemetery where Hendrix is buried.
In a statement given to Rolling Stone, Rep. Smith said “this designation will further celebrate Hendrix’s deep connection to the Puget Sound region and help ensure that his creative legacy will be remembered by our community and inspire future generations.”
