The TePee
Cherry Valley, NY
The TePee was built in 1950 by Ken and Iris Gurney. They still run this souvenir shop. It was actually on old Route 20 (the entire highway relocated) and moved when it did. The teepee was rebuilt on a larger scale at that point. It is 50 feet tall and 42 feet wide. There used to be a stuffed horse but that has been replaced with a fiberglass buffalo. The teepee used to have a metallic finish but it was painted light yellow in 1997. Somewhere between 2002 and 2004 (the middle and bottom photos), the lacing was painted on the front of the building.

Paducah, KY
This Teepee may have originally been used as an ice cream stand. It was later used as a liquor store. As of 2010 when these photos were taken, the teepee appeared to be vacant. Does anyone know the history of this place? [map]

Kampvilla RV Park
Bear Lake, MI
Cherokee Trading Post
Budd Lake, NJ
This Kampvilla RV Park teepee is visible from the road. It is about five feet tall. [map]

The Cherokee Trading Post opened around 1945. The store cosed in 2016. The teepee is still there but the Indian and horse statues are gone. [map]

Cherokee Trading Post
Geary, OK
The Cherokee Trading Post in Geary opened in 1958. The teepee topped building shown on the left above was probably built then. The teepee building on the right was built next door in 2011. It houses the C-W-Y Restaurant and the convenience store for the Shell gas station. [map]

Indian Village Adventure Golf [gone]
Houghton Lake, MI
These photos of the teepee and sign at Indian Village Adventure Golf were taken in 2006. By 2011, there was no trace of the place left.

Indian Village
St. Ignace, MI
The Indian Village was established in 1927. The gift shop originally featured demonstrations of Indian basket weaving and other crafts. The original building featured five teepees. It was rebuilt in 1977. The signs appear to be from the 1950s. For more, see this website. [map]

Zubler's Indian Craft Shop [gone]
Houghton Lake, MI
Zubler's Indian Craft Shop had an assortment of teepees, totem poles, Indian statues, signs, and a gift shop. Zubler's featured Pow-Wow performances by Chippewa Reservation Indians. These photos are from 2011. The store closed in 2016 and the statues and the rest are gone now.

Rockin' Chair Gift Shop
Houghton Lake, MI
The Rockin' Chair Gift Shop features a menagerie of fiberglass animals, other statues, a concrete teepee, and other photo-ops. I believe this place has been around since at least the 1960s. [map]
