Modern-day Grand Teton National Park has a diverse and long-standing history that includes evidence of human use from more than 11,000 years ago. The nomadic Indians who summered in this valley left behind physical evidence that includes tipi rings, firepits and stone tools. Following use by American Indian tribes, early American explorers came to the area and included John Colter, as well as fur trappers and mountain men, followed by permanent settlers in 1884. Additional historical highlights include the, the Chapel of Transfiguration and Cunningham Cabin Historic Site.

Jackson Hole was originally populated by indigenous tribes including:

  • Bannock
  • Blackfoot
  • Crow
  • Gros Ventre
  • Shoshoni

People often ask whether they are in Jackson Hole or Jackson. The answer is… both! Jackson Hole refers to the entire valley which is approximately 60 miles long. Jackson refers to the Town of Jackson which sits on the southern end of the Jackson Hole valley.
