…to one of the three remaining Wigwam Motels! Seven were built in the 1930s through the 1950s. Most fell into disrepair during the sixties and seventies.
The Wigwam Motel #7 in San Bernadino/Rialto, CA went through a particulary seedy time during the 70s, when rooms were rented by the hour. The motel’s sign invited guests to “do it in a teepee.”

The Wigwam Village in Cave City, Kentucky appears to have a fine gift shop.
