A Seattle post office is changing its name in order to honor hometown hero and guitar icon Jimi Hendrix.

Washington State officials motioned to rename Renton Highlands Post Office to James Marshall “Jimi” Hendrix Post Office. According to the Seattle Times, the bill was passed unanimously.

The post office is less than a mile away from Hendrix’s memorial at Greenwood Memorial Park cemetery in Renton.

Sponsored by Representative Adam Smith, the post office’s name change was also supported by senators Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell.

“I am honored to join in paying tribute to rock and roll icon and Seattle native Jimi Hendrix with the renaming of the Renton Highlands Post Office as the James Marshall ‘Jimi’ Hendrix Post Office Building,” Smith says in a story with the Seattle Times. “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.”

When the name change was first introduced, Smith said the bill is a way to celebrate the musician’s legacy.

“The Puget Sound Region is home to a museum that showcases Hendrix’s life and work, a park dedicated to his memory, and several memorials visited by thousands every year,” Smith says. “This designation will further honor this iconic artist and his Seattle roots.”
