Menors Ferry General Store

20 Apr

Wyoming’s Grand Teton National Park boasts beautiful vistas and plenty of rich history including the story of Bill Menor.  Bill traveled from Ohio to Montana, finally settling on the Snake River in 1892,“where the river was altogether in one place.” Near present-day Moose, he found that the river narrowed to a single channel, making it an ideal place to settle and start business, well businesses. Bill had a ferry service, owned a smokehouse, blacksmith shop, raised vegetables and served as a postmaster. Today, period furnishings are in the cabin, and the storekeeper still sells goods to visitors which now includes  Rawhide Studio’s jewelry !

The Grand Teton Association manages the store; open seven days a week during the peak summer season.
