New Owners at Historic Wigwam Village No. 2 Holding Open House
I've only slept outside maybe three times. One time was just in my backyard with some neighborhood kids. I'm probably more of an indoor lodging person, however, I've always wanted to visit and to stay at Historic Wigwam Village No. 2 in Cave City. Look at those teepees.
Built in 1937, the Wigwams were put in place/opened for visitors to Mammoth Cave or if they were passing through on their way to Bowling Green or further south to Nashville. Wigwams sleep two, a single or sleep four, a double and they feature the original hickory bed frames, caned chairs, night stands, and vanities created by the Old Hickory Furniture Co in Indiana almost a century ago. The red and white tile in the bathrooms are all original. Two large fire pits, retro playground, cooking grills, and a pavilion is available for guests' outdoor use.
Since it's 2021, the Wigwam Village has wi-fi, flat screen TVs, and USB charging ports. New owners Keith Stone and Megan Smith have backgrounds in historic preservation and architecture so they are keeping the Village as original as possible. They hope to eventually reopen the restaurant that was housed in the Bigwam. It's now an office and gift shop.
Now, the exciting part, the Village's "Sleep in a Wigwam" sign has been refurbished and it will be relit on Saturday night as part of an open house celebration beginning at 6:30 p.m.
Historic Wigwam Village No.2 is one of three surviving wigwam villages of the seven built around the country before 1950. The Cave City attraction is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
