White Grass Dude Ranch Rehabilitation
The White Grass Dude Ranch rehabilitation project was begun in 2005 and is scheduled for completion in 2016 for the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service. The project is jointly funded by the National Park Service and the National Trust for Historic Preservation in a 60/40 match between government funds and privately raised dollars. The project encompasses approximately thirty acres and thirteen historic log cabins. The ranch is being rehabilitated for adaptive use by the Western Center as a lodging and training facility for historic preservation students. Once the rehabilitation is complete, the WCHP will host training courses and volunteer groups at the center, teaching students preservation techniques and practices.

Planning for the rehabilitation of the thirteen structures divided the work into three key phases: Phase I included the stabilization of the thirteen buildings. Phase II consisted of installing utility infrastructure and rehabilitation of the first three structures, and Phase III called for the rehabilitation of the ten remaining structures. The project is currently in Phase III, with six cabins already complete.

Cultural landscape--view of White Grass dude ranch and death canyon
The cultural landscape at White Grass ranch is equally important in the rehabilitation process.  Fences, pathways, and roads all play a large role in forming an impression of this historic ranch.

Did you know that Grand Teton National Park was established in both 1929 and 1950? The original 1929 park protected the mountain peaks and the lakes near the base. The boundaries were later expanded in 1950 to include much of the adjacent valley floor.
