Tee Pee Motel
Wharton, TX
The Tee Pee Motel was built in 1942 as part of Belcher's Courts. It features eleven wood and stucco teepees. The teepees were abandoned in the 1980s. In 2006, the sign and teepees were restored and the motel reopened. These photos are from 2011. For more, see these websites: 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5. [map]

Indian Village Motor Court [gone]
Alberta, VA
The Indian Village Motor Court was on Route 1, 60 miles south of Richmond. According to the postcard, "The Indian village is a camp for the discriminating. The wigwams are of wood and steel construction, and each contains a complete bathroom, hot and cold water, and shower." There were also private garages and a 24-hour restaurant on site. I don't know when they were built or destroyed.

The Indian Village Campground is part of Yokum's Vacationland. These teepees are available for rent. They are 12 feet in diameter.
