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 Post goes to Luckenbach, Texas


N-Post-in-Texas-Sue-on-Tumbleweed-Post-Luckenbach-TXSue and Phil Harrison recently returned from a 3,200 mile round trip to San Antonio, Texas to see their son and his family, and they were good enough to take along a copy of the Post.

“We wanted to find a very unique place to shoot a picture of the Post and it couldn’t have been any better than Luckenbach, Texas, population 3,” explained Sue. “The town’s population soars to thousands when bikers and country and western fans from all over the US come for concerts there. The general store/post office/gift shop/saloon is the oldest building. Luckenbach’s claim to fame is being featured in a song by Waylon Jennings and Willy Nelson, both of whom have held sold out concerts in the dance hall.”

N-Post-Texas-Sue-Emma-Phil-_Post-Luckenbach-TXSue said that although they didn’t see Waylon or Willy, they got to sit on Tumbleweed, the longhorn steer, and have their picture taken as they read the Post. They also got a great shot of Sue, Phil and granddaughter Emma in front of the Luckenbach General Store.

Thanks so much for taking us with you!
