moulton barn

It is perhaps one of Jackson Hole’s most photographed scenes:

A weathered barn in a green meadow rises up against the Tetons.


Moulton Barn, part of the Mormon settlement now called Mormon Row, still stands intact in all of its rustic glory. The barn has become an icon of the Old West. Weathered almost a century and still standing, the Moulton Barn bears testimony of the steadfast nature of Mormon settlers travelling west in search of religious freedom.


"They say it has angles that correspond with the mountains," Clark Moulton says of the barn his father started building in 1913.
