Read all about it

Menor's Ferry was a 19th century ferry operation crossing the Snake River near present day Moose, Wyoming. In 1892 Bill Menor came into Jackson Hole and settled on a homestead by squatter's right. Menor built a ferry that would carry a wagon load of logs and a four horse team across the Snake in one trip. The site includes the homesite of Mr. Menor as well as the Ferry itself. In 1929 the Rockefeller family came into possession of the property and restored it. In 1953 the site became the property of the National Park Service.
