Like the cabins at Upper Granite Canyon, Cascade Canyon, and Death Canyon, the Moran Bay Patrol Cabin is significant for its association with Grand Teton National Park administration and development, and for its association with federal rustic architecture. The cabin was constructed around 1932 and appears to have been shared by various federal agencies. The cabin is located in an area that was administered by the U.S. Forest Service from around 1905 until 1943. The building conforms to a standard design used widely by the Forest Service for backcountry cabins. In 1943, with the establishment of Grant Teton National Monument, the National Park Service assumed administrative control. Administrative trails linked Moran Bay Cabin with other National Park Service and U.S. Forest Service backcountry infrastructure.
