Western History

My dad loved studying the history of the early homesteaders in Jackson Hole.  He logged over 3,400 hours of volunteer work for the Historical Center, organizing six file cabinets of information, tagging them digitally and providing an index.  Here he’s seen with my friend, Cathy, at the museum, explaining about the early homesteaders.

He took Sarah and me to the Geraldine Lucas home, which is not a normal tourist destination.

We also spent some time with him in various places looking for burials of early pioneers.

But one of the most unique activities (when our children were small) was riding on historic Menor’s Ferry the summer that Daddy volunteered to take visitors back and forth across the Snake River.  That was a treat!
