Wigwam Motel San Bernardino

The Wigwam Motel, also known as the "Wigwam Village", is a motel chain in the United States build between the 1930s and 1940s. The chambers are shaped like teepees, mistakenly called Wigwams. It originally had 7 different locations: two locations in Kentucky and one location in Alabama, Florida, Arizona, Louisiana and California.

They are very different historical sites. Two of the three U.S. survivor motels in history are located on Route 66: Holbrook, Arizona, and on the city border between Rialto and San Bernardino, California. All three surviving motels are listed in the National Register of Historic Places, the Wigwam Motel in California listed as Wigwam Village in 2012.

Redford began building these tepee-shaped rooms in 1933. His inspiration for creating this style of villages came from his collection of Native American art and artefacts. He was also inspired by the design of an ice cream parlour he visited in Long Beach, California.
