Mud Creek Hogan Trading Post
Mancos, CO
The "Rain of Giant Arrows" was installed in front of the Mud Creek Hogan Trading Post in 1959 to attract tourists. There are about 30 giant arrows made from telephone poles and three wooden teepees. They were constructed by Wilma Brimhall with the help of local Navajo Indians. [map]

Parson's Indian Trading Post & Museum
Wisconsin Dells, WI
Parson's Indian Trading Post & Museum opened in 1914 as a general store which also sold Native American hand-crafted goods. It is still in business. [map]

Teepee
Englewood, CO
Indian Oaks Cabins
Theodosia, MO
Venture River Ride
Myrtle Beach, SC
Mailbox
East Orland, ME
The Teepee in Englewood is located at the Castlewood Branch library. [map]

The Indian Oaks Cabins has a small cement teepee.

The Venture River Ride at Family Kingdom Amusement Park features these two small teepees. This kiddie ride was probably modeled after the Lazy River concept of local motels (with little boats instead of inner tubes). [map]

This Teepee Mailbox is made of fabric surrounding a traditional metal box. It seems to be for a private residence.

former Westward Ho!
Campground [gone]
Milford, NE
Native Views
Shelburne Falls, MA
Peace Pipe Cottages
Bolton Landing, NY
Arrowhead Motel
Whittier, NC
The former Westward Ho! Campground featured this teepee as part of its Milford Inn. There were two of these structures originally. One had restrooms with showers while the other was used as a spare motel room. This teepee disappeared between 2013 and 2014. For more, see this website.

Native Views was known as the Big Indian Gift Shop until 2011. These teepees are used for photo-ops. This souvenir stand was established in 1954. [map]

The Peace Pipe teepee is made of canvas rather than concrete and is part of a children's playground at a resort.

The Arrowhead Motel teepee might be used as a storage shed. [map]

Tucson, AZ
Teepees
Seligman, AZ
The Teepee in Tucson is located at Tucson Mineral and Gem World. [map]

These three wooden Teepees in Seligman stand in front of a U-Haul dealer. The paint has deteriorated considerably between the first photo from 2006 and the second photo from 2012. Does anyone know more about these teepees? For more, see this website. [map]

Teepee
Kanab, UT
Teepees
Valley Center, CA
This Teepee in Kanab stands next to the Nature's Showcase gift shop. This was previously the Kansas Wonderstone Gift Shop. For more, see this website. [map]

This pair of concrete Teepees in Valley Center is located on the property belonging to the former Rincon Chapel Assembly of God Church. I don't know when they were built or what they were used for. [map]

TeePee Park
Sierra Blanca, TX
The TeePee Park is a rest area off I-10. I have seen old postcards of this place but I don't know how old it is. There are three concrete teepees with picnic tables underneath them. There are very similar teepees in Redford, TX. [map]

Prayer Teepee
Apache, OK
I-90 rest area
Wasta, SD
Oklahoma Welcome Center
east of Sallisaw, OK
Saamis Teepee
Medicine Hat, AB
The Prayer Teepee was built in 1980. [map]

This stylized, concrete teepee is located at the I-90 rest area just east of exit 98. I believe all of the South Dakota I-90 rest areas have these. [map]

These stylized teepees are located at the Oklahoma Welcome Center rest area on I-40 near mile marker 316. There are other teepee rest areas like this on I-40 and I-35. For more, see this website. [map]

The Saamis Teepee is 215 feet tall making it the world's largest teepee. It was built for the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary. After the Olympics, it was moved to Medicine Hat. [map]

Creek Freedman Shrine
Muskogee, OK
This Creek Freedman Shrine was built in the early 1990s by Napoleon Davis. The cultural and visitors center never actually opened and Davis passed away around 2000. The building has been abandoned for many years. For more, see this website. [map]
