Moulton Barn To Celebrate 100 Years

Moulton Barn

You see it on photos, paintings, calendars, and murals just to name a few places that have depicted the Moulton Barn over the years — and it is familiar to millions of people even if they don’t know where it is. That barn is about to celebrate its 100th anniversary, and Grand Teton National Park is putting together plans to join in the celebration. Park Spokesperson Jackie Skaggs says often the Tetons take a back seat to the barn because it is such a classic, iconic image of the old west.  Skaggs describes it this way: “A combination of the wonderful, interesting barn and its weathered look – harkening us back to that historic time when settlers were making their ways here, and difficulty of life in settling in Jackson Hole – with the Tetons in the background, it comes together in a synergy that captures your imagination, I think.”  Skaggs says for those who participate, the anniversary day will feel not unlike an old barn-raising common among neighbors in those early days. Along with that flavor though, she says there will be such activities as storytelling, walking tours, music and art. The celebration is to take place next month with a variety of local, state and national park dignitaries on hand.  Between now and then, critical conservation work to the barn is to be completed and long-time residents and curators of the Jackson Hole Historical Society and Museum will be putting together an exhibit of original art and photography brought to them by both amateur and professional artists to be displayed at the museum.
