Read all about it

The Robert E. Miller Ranch is located approximately three miles north of the town of Jackson and is situated at the bottom of the west slope of the Gros Ventre Mountains with a commanding view of Jackson Hole and the Teton Mountain Range. The site consists of three historic structures which served as the residence of Robert E. Miller, the first superintendent of Teton National Monument. The property was later transferred to what would later become the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service as a component of the National Elk Refuge. The site is significant because of its association with the historic pattern of settlement in Jackson Hole and because of its association with conservation activities. An integral component of the Robert E. and Grace G. Miller homestead, two individual structures at the site were previously listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The ranch house and the barn, built between 1895 and 1898, and the Forest Service cabin together represent an important convergence of settlement, ranching, and conservation as distinct elements of the history of Jackson Hole.
