You've seen their pictures, paintings, and videos and may have wondered where they're located. Considering many people who live in Wyoming have never been to Yellowstone or Grand Teton National Parks, there's a good chance you've never seen them outside of pictures.

Grovont, you say?

You may know the area as Mormon Row.

The community was developed in the 1890s as part of the Homestead Act of 1862, which granted land ownership to those willing to build a house and work it for five years. A group of Mormons left the Salt Lake Region, searching for a new place to settle and develop, and chose a location close to Blacktail Butte as their home. The name Grovont was chosen as a play-off of the nearby Gros Ventre River.

At the beginning of Gorvont, 27 homesteads were built close to each other, in a line running North/ South along a central road. These communities were known as Morman line villages or Morman Rows, and were built this way so they could all work together to build and work on their land. The community consisted of ranches, homes, a church, and a school.

In the early 1920s, when the original homesteaders left the area, the name Grovont gave way to be being known as simply Morman Row. Buisnessman John D. Rockefeller purchased much of the area and donated it to the Federal Government to create a National Park. Because of the area's historical factor, it was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1997.

Today, a few of the original buildings are still standing and the barns have become some of the most photographed in the country. Photographers, artists, and visitors have all made their way to the area to snap photos of the iconic barns with the Teton mountains as the backdrop.

Since it's part of the National Park System, the area is open to anyone who wants to visit and take an iconic photo of their own.

Drive north from Jackson on Highway 191 past Moose Junction and turn right onto Antelope Flats Road. Follow the road about 1 ½ miles until you see a north-south running dirt road marked by a distinctive pink stucco house on the left with a small dirt parking area. A trail brochure and interpretive sign can be found at the parking lot.
