Photo Selected To Celebrate Barn’s Centennial

moultonbarn

The centennial celebration of a popular icon in Grand Teton National Park is little more than one week away now.  Grand Teton National Park has partnered with the Jackson Hole Historical Society & Museum and the T.A. Moulton Barn Centennial Celebration committee to stage a public celebration July 20th at the barn beginning at 10:00 am, including displays of artwork and photography depicting the barn and the Tetons behind it.  Photographer Rodney Lough, Jr. has released a limited edition image, ‘Moulton Barn – Centennial,’ which has been selected to serve as the official representation of the Moulton Barn Centennial Celebration.  A poster of the image will also be offered for sale by the Grand Teton National Park Bookstore as well as at the event. Sales of the photo and other commemorative artwork are to help raise money to effect much-needed restoration work to the 100 year-old structure. Construction on the T.A. Moulton Barn was started in 1913 to shelter horses and cows from the harsh Wyoming winters. It was part of the Moulton family’s homestead on what became known as Mormon Row, and they worked the land there until 1961. In the 100 years since, it has become a national landmark, loved visitors and particularly by photographers.
