The gorgeous Grand Tetons. I was just there a few weeks ago. The colors, light, and rustic architecture are a refreshing antidote to urban living.
Menor’s Ferry Homestead in present day Moose, Wyoming is a charming collection of buildings built in the late 1800’s.
Unusual architecture in that classical forms are applied to the rustic log construction and the whitewashing is also interesting. Today, it houses a souvenir and antiques store.
Menor sold to Noble in 1918 and the Maud Noble Cabin was moved to the property at that time. Here is a view of the interior of the Noble Cabin which has been renovated several times over the years and operated as a tea room in the 20’s and also in the 50’s. The cabin was the site of the 1923 meeting in which representatives from Yellowstone National Park, businessmen, and local ranchers began the process of creating the Grand Teton National Park.
The chapel was built in 1925 by St. John’s Episcopal Church in Jackson to service guests and employees of local dude ranches.
Hard to see in this picture, but the chapel was built for the alter area to frame the view of the Cathedral Group of peaks in the background.
