Photographers, wildlife watchers and history buffs will all enjoy a stop at the Mormon Row Historic District. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, this tract of land was founded as a Mormon ranch settlement in the 1890s and to this day contains preserved homesteads and barns that provide a compelling foreground to the Teton Range in the backdrop. If you're lucky, you might see some antelope or other mammals grazing.
A recent visitor comments that photographers will enjoy shooting images of the district's Moulton barns, especially during different times of days to capture various lighting effects. To increase your chances of spotting wildlife while on-site, several past travelers recommend arriving around sunrise or sunset.
You can access the district from Highway 191, off of Antelope Flats Road in the park's southeast swath. After driving along the road for a little more than a mile, you'll see a dirt road with a pink stucco house and a small dirt parking area. Admission is included in your park entrance fee. Brochures are available in the parking area. Check out the National Park Service's website to learn more.
