Read all about it

The White Grass Ranger Station Historic District was built in 1930 using standardized plans of the National Park Service to be a backcountry ranger station for horse patrols during the early years of the Park's history. It was built at the western edge of the White Grass Valley southwest of Moose, Wyoming near a number of trail heads into the Teton Mountains which rise west of the district. The resources that make up the district include a cabin that functions as the ranger's office and quarters, a fire cache shed, a tack room shed, and a corral. The district was built in the rustic style as defined by the National Park Service. The district is the only example of the horse patrol era station extant in the Park.
