In the 1890’s, Leaders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, or Mormons, sent parties from the Salt Lake Valley to establish new communities and support their expanding population. Some of these Mormon homesteaders settled in the valley called Jackson Hole, WY. They created a community and clustered their farms to share labor and resources. Today, this homestead has been preserved and is known as Mormon Row. Mormon Row Historic District was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1997.
