Famous Barns

In May of 2012 The Famous Barns Tour showcased the barns of Mormon Row, a few miles north of Jackson, Wyoming, in the Grand Teton National Park.  I’d worked with the Historical Society of Jackson Hole to provide us with a historical background of the area at their museum and then we headed to the barns of Mormon Row.  (The T.A. Moulton Barn is one of the most famous and was the last one sold to the National Park.)
You’ll recognize these as some of the most photographed in the nation.  With the Tetons at their backdoor, the light at sunrise is breath-taking.

I just learned that the Grand Teton National Park has planned a similar party this year at the park on July 20th.  They’re celebrating the barns’ 100 years and raising funds for continued restoration efforts.

If you can attend, your tour needs to include a stay at The Historic Wort Hotel, dinner at The Granary Restaurant at Spring Creek Ranch and a drink at both the Silver Dollar Bar and the Million Dollar Cowboy Bar!
