Abstract: Taking inverse limits of the one-parameter family of tent maps of the interval generates a one-parameter family of inverse limit spaces. We prove that, for a dense set of parameters, these spaces are locally, at most points, the product of a Cantor set and an arc. On the other hand, we show that there is a dense $G_\delta $ set of parameters for which the corresponding space has the property that each neighborhood in the space contains homeomorphic copies of every inverse limit of a tent map.
