“A 50ft Concrete Teepee”

It's 50-feet tall, 33-ft. in diameter and was the centerpiece of a US 40 roadside complex "Indian Village" that included a gas station, restaurant and motor court of smaller tee pee cabins. The 14 tee pee cabins are long demolished. Today what remains is a one-floor building with a tee pee on either end, and the main tee pee. Marks on the side indicate the high water marks from Kansas River floods in 1951 and 1935.

Just like photo. Cute place to stop and grab a quick photo, while stretching your legs.

Address was wrong! Check Google maps! The high water lines were neat to see but I think someone was staying in the teepee so it felt awkward to gawk.

Not far off expressway and a cute stop. Worth it if you are collecting "largest" stops on your road trips.

At least we got out to stretch our legs! Directions had us turn the wrong way but we saw it across the intersection once we turned around. A bit run down. Photo op only. No services.

It felt a little odd stopping because one of the teepees appears to be someone’s home. But they are really neat and a fun, quick stop!

It was just fun to get out and walk around. The paintings on them are fun to look at too.

GPS took us left on N 1800 when it's really a right on a different street at that intersection. Don't take the dirt road. It was kind of cool, but not really that exciting or worth the stop. It looked like someone was living there.
