DescriptionEdit

 
Andy Chambers Ranch, July 2014

The ranch is the only remaining nearly complete farmstead in Mormon Row, itself a historic district the southeast corner of Grand Teton National Park, in the valley called Jackson Hole. The locale was settled by Mormon migrants between 1900 and 1920, creating an enclave near the Gros Ventre River. The farmstead dates to the 1920s and includes a house, barn, garage and a variety of outbuildings.[2]

The Mormon Row was a line village, similar to Grouse Creek, Utah, with a relatively dense development stretched along the line of the connecting road, allowing for extensive pasturage along either side behind the houses and buildings.[3]

The Andy Chambers Ranch was added to the National Register of Historic Places on April 23, 1990.[1]
