After a short walk from the parking lot the General Store and ferry do not look like much at first sight. Once inside the general store history does come alive and you get the feeling of how it might have been 100 years ago. Outside at the ferry we learned how ingenious Bill Menor was to use the river’s current... More

This is a very short walk to see the ferry and Menor's cabin. You should also go across the parking lot to the Church of the Transfiguration. It's a beautiful historic church with an amazing view above the altar.

This was a nice quiet spot on our trip. We visited in mid-September so crowds were not an issue. The Maud Nobel cabin and the history behind it is amazing. The Chapel of the Transfiguration is lovely. Children will love to ring the bell outside. There's also Menor's General Store which is fun to shop thru. If it's a cold... More

It was raining the first day we were in the area, so we just stopped briefly at Chapel of the Transfiguration and did not bother to walk down to Menor's Ferry. Happily, we were able to stop again on a better day and made the short walk from the parking lot to the Ferry area where we arrived just in... More

If you like learning about the original settlers in an area, this is one of them. A great little peak into the origins of Jackson becoming inhabited by non-native peoples. You will see some original structures, wagons, equipment and of course the replica of the ferry used to cross the Snake River and expand commerce to the east side of... More

We happened upon this old ferry on another trip to Dornan's and it was a short and very fascinating trip across the river and up to the historical cabin on the opposite bank. The cabin has old-time gifts, a few displays, and free cookies baked on site in an ancient stove if you get there early enough. Check ahead for... More

I would have given this area a "5" but unfortunately the Historical Ferry was not working - I was excited to ride it across the river! But, I still had an excellent time in this historical area. We were greeted by the gentleman working in the general store. He was so friendly and showed us fun items in the store... More

A nice little stop, with some very interesting displays and information. Ferry was not in operation but was interesting to see and read about.

We did the afternoon ranger tour/talk at this site with our three children (13, 11, 9). Ranger Mike was excellent. He reviewed the history of the homestead, ferry, and other cabin which was moved onto the site by the second owners. Provided an interesting overview of what homesteading was like and how the park came into existence. The ferry ride... More

This is a fun little trail near the visitor center at the south end of the park. The Snake River runs along the trail and you can catch a glimps of an old river ferry. The General store is run by the park service and staffed with volunteers. They usually have the wood burning stove going and have had ginger-molasses... More
