Roads: Route 66 and Route 65

In the heyday of the national auto craze, when Route 66 was
the “Mother Road,” a man named Frank Redford had the idea that motorists would
make a roadside stop when an attraction was visually startling. Redford’s
concrete teepees (each containing an individual motel room) encircled a larger
teepee housing a restaurant, gift shop, and gas station. Only three Wigwam
Villages are left (two along Route 66 and one on Route 65); they remain
enduring symbols of the surprise and romance of the westward road trip.
