Patrick, Tia and Tresa Nielsen, of Pierson, along with Tia’s best friend Brianna Monroe, of Marco Island, Florida, recently took the Post on an educational road trip. They started in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, and made a stop in Cave City, Kentucky, where they booked an over night stay at the Wigwam Village Inn #2. Frank A. Redford patented the design with the US patent office in1935, so he could build these tee-pee sleeping structures in Kentucky, Alabama, Florida, New Orleans California and Arizona. Today this is one out of three Wigwam Village Inns still in existence. The other two are in Arizona and California. The Nielsen’s stayed overnight after visiting the Mammoth Cave National Park, which encompasses 52,830 areas. The Native Americans discovered Mammoth Cave about 4,000 years ago and continued to use it for 2,000 years. Tours began in 1816 and it increasingly draws in about 650,000 visitors a year.
“We have the Post mailed to us down at Marco Island, Florida every week,” noted Tresa.
Thanks so much for taking the Post with you on your adventure!
