Visitor Tips and News About Fifty-Foot-Tall Concrete Teepee
A unique building, refurbished and well kept. The sign on the door says "Welcome" but, looking inside, there were only a couple of chairs and a washer/dryer. We think it is now a residence. It was fun going up to it to take a pic; it doesn't look 50 feet tall until you are up next to it. We saw the water lines marked on the building from previous floods; hard to believe the water was so high above our heads. The other building with the two teepees on either end is now used for party rental. The teepee is right on the highway so you don't have to search too hard to find it. Just a nice place to stop and regroup to find the next quirky place. Glad we saw it.[Anita, 10/19/2012]
Doesn't appear to be a restaurant any longer. Deserted when we drove by...[Michelle, 03/22/2011]
Looks like this tee pee has a new lease on life -- fresh paint and a sign saying it's a restaurant. It wasn't open at the time when we went by.[Mike & Susan, 09/26/2009]
