Western Center for Historic Preservation
The WCHP was jointly developed by the National Park Service and the National Trust for Historic Preservation, and includes a preservation shop and office facility in Moose, WY, for year round carpentry and administrative work, and the rehabilitation of White Grass Dude Ranch as a training facility and cultural resource center for seasonal research. The Moose facility, a massive log building that was moved from the Rockefeller's JY Ranch, was completed in 2006 and currently serves as the headquarters for the WCHP. The White Grass Dude Ranch rehabilitation project is underway, with a scheduled completion date of 2016. For the most up-to-date information on the WCHP and White Grass, visit the WCHP blog.
Did You Know?
Did you know that the black stripe, or dike, on the face of Mount Moran is 150 feet wide and extends six or seven miles westward? The black dike was once molten magma that squeezed into a crack when the rocks were deep underground, and has since been lifted skyward by movement on the Teton fault.
