Menor Ferry, Teton National Park

We visited Bill Menor’s Ferry and his 1892 homestead along the Snake River.

Jackson Hole homesteader Geraldine Lucas used this Alaskan dog sled to carry moderate loads and visit her neighbors in the early 1900s


In 1888, Robert Miller drove this wagon over Teton pass from Idaho into Jackson Hole.  He became the first homesteader to drive a wagon over the steep and treacherous mountain pass.


Visitors touring Yellowstone National Park prior to 1916 rode in this wagon.
