Twin Tee-Pee’s


Unfortunately, this long-standing visual and cultural community landmark is lost forever. The Twin Teepees, which opened in 1937 on Aurora near Green Lake, was torn down, without fanfare or warning. The kitschy building, which had been heavily damaged inside by fire in June 2000, had not been officially nominated as a historic landmark. If it had been nominated as even a local landmark, it could have been saved. Through the years, the distinctive building, modeled after Native American tepees and intended to lure motorists from the road, had been considered for landmark status, but it was never nominated and now it’s gone. So sad…
