Read all about it

The Andy Chambers Ranch Historic District is significant in that it remains as the only nearly complete farmstead/ranch of the once densely settled Mormon Row. Mormons made up the bulk of settlers that entered Jackson Hole from 1900 to 1920. Within a few years a discernible community had developed and even though it was not a town it was dubbed Mormon Row because of the religious preference of many of the settlers and the fact that they took up lands on either side of a road that ran north from the Gros Ventre River. Eventually a LDS church was built on the Row and the settlers started the process of turning pioneer farms into permanent ones. The Chambers place is located near the center of this settlement. The frame vernacular buildings at the farmstead date to the 1920s and include the house, an outhouse, a garage, a barn, a chicken house, a machine shed, grain storage buildings, and an oil shed.
