Ernie's Window

The 1953 Western classic film Shane was largely filmed in the Jackson Hole Valley. Most of the set locations for the film have long ago been dismantled including the town that was built on the Antelope Flats and several other cabins. This cabin and two other smaller structures just next to it are the only set from the movie that remain. The three structures were actually real cabins of early Jackson Hole settlers that were repurposed for the movie. In a major plot of the movie, a powerful rancher was trying to force the homesteaders out of their homes to secure control of the valley for his ranch. This cabin was the cabin of homesteader Ernie Wright in the movie. From the window on the western wall of the cabin, you get a nice view of the mountains.
