Sommers Ranch Headquarters Historic District

Sommers Ranch Corrals

Pinedale, Wyoming

The buildings that populate the Sommers Ranch Headquarters Historic District are typical of those that were constructed on modest, Green River ranches in the early 20th century. Timber was transported to Sommers from the surrounding mountains and used to build at least 11 structures: a homestead house, meat house, cellar, garage, outhouse, cow barn, granary, bunkhouse, icehouse, barn, and chicken house. These structures have changed very little over time and demonstrate what a family in the isolated Green River Valley required to be self-sufficient. The Sommers Ranch remains in operation today.
