Teepee and Fiberglass Indian

Field review by the editors.

Lake George, New York

Open since 1993, the Leather Outlet calls itself "Home of the World's Famous Tee-Pee," referring to a small tee-pee-shaped building in the parking lot that apparently predates the business. Why the Tee-Pee is "world famous" may be for no other reason than it's in tourism-hotspot Lake George, and a lot of people have seen it over the years.

On the other side of the parking lot is a 14-foot-tall fiberglass Indian. Its recent history is better known than the Tee-Pee's; Leather Outlet moved it here in 2019 after buying it from the defunct Magic Forest theme park, where it had stood since the 1990s.
