The history of Grand Teton National Park's Mormon Row.

Wyoming – It is one of Wyoming's iconic images - a leaning wooden barn with a peaked roof, the Grand Tetons rising in the background. The two barns that still stand in the shadow of the Tetons were built by the Moulton brothers, who lived in the farming community of Gros Ventre. Many homesteaders along that road were members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and their town, which thrived in the early 1900s, became known as Mormon Row. Now, only one of the Mormon Row houses is still occupied. It sits on one acre, the only piece of private land left in that corner of Grand Teton National Park. Former WPR reporter Addie Goss has the story.
