If you are looking to learn about the rich history of Jackson Hole, make sure to stop by Mormon Row. Mormon Row is a historical homesteading site located in the Grand Teton National Park. The original cabins, barns and structure to the 1890s homestead are still standing in the area. In the 1890s, a group of Mormons came over from Idaho and established their farms in a cluster pattern to help to share labor and build a community, which is in stark contrast to typical Western homesteaders. The Mormons created 27 homesteads in the community called Grovont. The Mormon settlers grew many crops due to a created irrigation system. The settlers built an intricate network of levees and dikes to funnel water to their fields to grow crops despite the harsh Wyoming conditions. Many of these ditches still flow water today. The buildings were decaying until the 1990s when an effort was made to preserve them. In 1997, Mormon Row was placed on the National Register of Historic Places.
