Warbonnet Wednesday -- Wigwam and a freight
Author: gcm

Oct 94

(1-2) Spent the night in the interesting Wigwam Hotel in Holbrook,Az.
It was built about 1950 along Route 66.
Near the Santa Fe main and the station.

(3-4) The concrete baggage/freight part of the station was built in the early 1900's.
The nice stone building on the far end was the passenger part built in 1892.
Both parts are still there (and the Wigwam is still in business).

(5) An eastbound passes the station.

Gotta love those touristy things about the wild west!

Stayed there in 1962 on my way west. Is it still there?

Reminds me of the Clark Griswold's "Vacation" movie.  
"That's your tent, Edna!"
