We drove out along the edge of the Tetons yesterday to find an abandoned community where hearty settlers who were part of a devoutly religious sect attempted to flourish. The Mormon Row House District is where many Mormons settled as they moved to form communities outside of their home base at Salt Lake City. Thomas Alma Moulton and his sons built the barn as part of a larger farm between 1912 and 1945-- it's now the only building on the Moulton family homestead, and was one of the last parcels of land sold to the NPS for Grand Teton. It's not hard to see why the family wanted to hang on to it for as long as possible-- it really is a gorgeous view!
