World's Largest Covered Wagon.

World's Largest Covered Wagon

At one time a gas station, and it still resembles a covered wagon, but today's visitors are disappointed that the giant wheels and cowboy are gone. Currently empty.

It's pretty bad now, shuttered and obviously broken into by people. Still a cool building!

Covered Wagon building.

World's Largest Covered Wagon

The building is for sale and kind of falling into disrepair. I didn't see a teepee anywhere around it.

World's Largest Covered Wagon

The property with the prairie town and teepee has been demolished, but the covered wagon was still standing the last time I passed here.

Corrugated metal teepee.

World's Largest Covered Wagon

Indeed, the gentleman who owned this property, and the property across the highway with the motel, teepee (you could stay in it, too), the church, school, etc. did pass away quite a number of years ago, explaining the increasing dilapidation of the properties. He put a great deal of work into building the area up, but sadly, it hasn't been taken care of since his death.

I understand from the locals that it is still in his family's possession. Too bad they didn't sell it so someone else could have taken care of this attraction he put so much of his life into. It was really a nice set-up in its day. It's still worth a look even today if you're in the area. I'm always amazed at what he did to make a gas station look like a real covered wagon!
