There is a barn with the first Conestoga wagon to make it over the Teton Pass, a dog sled, sleigh, and old coaches. I also enjoyed the old cabins and the explanation of how the ferry worked.

One of our shorter stops along the way. We were a bit too early for the cookies that were baking, sure smelled good. Hard to believe that people could live thru the winters here.

We enjoyed this walk and tour of the homestead. The volunteers running the store were very knowledgeable and nice to talk too. The history of the ferry and how it worked and all they did there was very interesting.

This short walk (less than half mile on a paved trail) around the Maude Noble cabin, the Bill Menor general store and the ferry is outstanding - don't miss it whether you are a long-distance hiker or a senior making your way slowly. The Noble...More

Stopped here and saw the ferry that would have been used to cross the Snake River. The general store was open and we had a Huckleberry soda. The cabin was interesting. You could really see how tough it was to live out here.
