Mormon Row

We have been playing in the Tetons for years, yet we went to Mormon Row for the first time last week! I looked at a website that listed ghost towns in Wyoming and discovered Mormon Row.

The village was settled by Mormon homesteaders in the 1890s and they eked a living until the mid-30s when they moved to greener pastures. They called the settlement Grovont. What a beautiful setting!

 They built log homes and barns, dug irrigation canals, and farmed the land.

Not too much is left of the village, but there’s a magnificent barn, some log homes and the remnants of life that made Grovont possible for the 27 families who called it home.
