in 1935 by Frank Redford, Wigwam Village #2 consisted of 15 guest
teepees, a restaurant, gas pumps, a gift shop, and restroom teepees
labeled braves and squaws.
all, seven Wigwam Villages were built making the idea a pioneer
in standard design and an early chain using a franchising model.
However the concept lacked a corporate structure rendering it
unable to survive as more than a curiosity after its founder died.
rare survival from another time, Cave City's Wigwam Village still
calls out to passers-by with its unique eye-catching design. It
is an American treasure of the Roadside.
