WHARTON, Texas (AP) - A bit of American history huddles next to old Highway 59, past the tractor dealers and the rice mills, just before a green sign that proclaims Wharton's population of 9,237.
It's easy to miss.
But it is there, just around the bend: a row of ten freshly painted, sand-colored tepees called the Tee Pee Motel.
It's a throwback to the 1940s and '50s, when taking a drive was still in style and roadside businesses used gimmicky architecture, like a gas station that looked like an oil derrick, to lure customers.
The Tee Pee Motel is one of just a handful of tepee-themed lodges left in the country.
