Thunderbird Tepee [gone]
Hollywood, FL
The Tepee [gone]
Pinellas Park, FL
Jerome's Tepee [gone]
Grand Island, NE
The Thunderbird Tepee was a souvenir stand on Highway 441 near the Seminole Reservation. It was still there in the late 1970s or early 1980s.

The Tepee was located just north of St. Petersburg on Highway 19.

Jerome's Tepee claimed to have the largest souvenir shop in the state. The tepee was torn down when a car crashed into it in the 1970s, damaging it beyond repair.

Husker Hut
Atlanta, NE
The Husker Hut was built as "The Wigwam" which was a souvenir stand. The building has been around since at least the 1950s or 1960s. The Husker Hut bar and restaurant were added later to the original structure. These photos are from 2006. I believe the building is vacant now. [map]

The Tee-Pee
Cheyenne, WY
The Tee-Pee was most likely a roadside stand when it was first built. At one time, it was used as the VFW and Boy Scout building. In recent years, it housed "Thunder Road Cycle", a motorcycle shop. It appeared to be vacant when these photos were taken in 2012. There was an Indian Village Motor Lodge in Cheyenne with a central teepee. However, the building's shape is different and I don't believe that this is the same place. [map]

Teepee
Egbert, WY
This Teepee is now used as a private residence. It was built as "The Warwhoop": a combination gas station, bar, gift shop, and convenience store. It has been here since at least the 1960s but it has probably been around since at least the 1930s. For more, see this website. [map]

Chief Poolaw's Tepee
Old Town, ME
Chief Poolaw's Tepee has been around since at least the 1950s. It was originally used as a souvenir stand. In 2004, the teepee reopened as the Princess Watahwaso Family Museum. Princess Watahwaso, known as the "Bright Star of the Penobscot" and the "Indian Mezzo-soprano", performed Native American themed songs in the 1910s and 1920s. [map]

Tepee Trading Post
Lupton, AZ
The Tepee Trading Post building is about 66 feet tall. It is a souvenir store that has been here for decades. In recent years, it was painted bright yellow and known as the Tomahawk Trading Post. In 2006 when both of the photos above were taken, the building was covered with siding. The photo on the far right shows a much smaller, photo-op teepee on the property. For more, see this website.

TeePee Curios
Tucumcari, NM
TeePee Curios opened as a Gulf gas station, grocery store, and souvenir shop in 1944. During road expansion in 1959, the teepee-shaped entrance was added and the gas pumps were removed. The neon sign was built in the mid-1960s. It was restored in 2003, based on a vintage photo. Shortly thereafter, a neon longhorn skull was installed over the building's entrance. The souvenir shop is still open. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2. [map]

The Meteor City Trading Post is housed in a dome and features several teepees. [map]

Howdy Hank's Trading Post
Joseph City, AZ
Howdy Hank's Trading Post was built in 1950 as the Hopi Village, a trading post souvenir shop. After Howdy Hank's, it became Sitting Bull's Indian Store. The building later housed a feed store. It now appears to be just a residence.

Cactus Cove Gift Shop

Indian Harvest Trading Post
Union, MO
TeePee Trading Post
Lake George, NY
Tom's Tee-Pee
Cave City, KY
The Indian Harvest Trading Post sells Native American arts and crafts. Let the visitor beware: the owners have quite a reputation for being unwelcoming. [map]

The TeePee Trading Post is faced with concrete. It is used for storage for the adjacent souvenir stand. Does anyone know when this was built? [map]

Tom's Tee-Pee is located behind a gift shop. The building did not appear to be in use in 2010. [map]
