Visitors are transported back to the Wild West when they enter the Menors Ferry Historic District. William (Bill) D. Menor settled beside the Snake River at the turn of the century and built the ferry that transported people across the river. Unlike other ferries, Menor's was fashioned in such a way as to allow it to move sideways in the river. Along with preserved 19th-century barns and cabins, the district features a working general store. Quick tip: Visitors heading to Menors Ferry should stop in at the Chapel of the Transfiguration for an awe-inspiring view of Grand Teton. This 1920s log chapel, which hosts Sunday services in the summer, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and contains an enormous window that overlooks Grand Teton. 

Some recent visitors enjoyed learning about the history of Menors Ferry through the guided tours, which are offered in the summer. Stopping in at the Chapel of the Transfiguration is a must-do, according to most travelers. 

You can access the district from Teton Park Road, located a half-mile north of Moose, Wyoming, near the park's southern entrance. For more information about the Menors Ferry Historic District, visit the National Park Service website.
