The Crandall Studio

The Jenny Lake Visitor Center is housed in the historic Crandall Studio. Built in the late 1920s, this structure served as Harrison Crandall's photography studio. Here, Crandall sold photographs and postcards of the Teton Range as park mementos while serving as the park’s official photographer. Capturing the spirit of Crandall, today the Jenny Lake Visitor Center serves as an art gallery and museum, illustrating the role that art has played in the conservation of the Teton Range.
