Read all about it

The Van Vleck House is a small one story log cabin located in Jackson, Wyoming. The building was built as a residential home in 1910-1911. The residential barn stands behind the house. Both structures are significant for their association with and representation of the earliest settlement of the town of Jackson in the early twentieth century. As the only original residential structures adjacent to the town square, the Van Vleck House and barn on the original lot represent the earliest history and development of this genuine old west agricultural community, which was later transformed by tourism.
