The Lookout Studio (1914) -- Seeing the crowds drawn to the South Rim’s Kolb Studio, The Fred Harvey Company decided to launch a similar business, only closer to the railroad terminus. Mary Colter was hired to design the building, which she eventually named The Lookout. Unlike some of her buildings, which were fashioned after occupied pueblos or well-preserved ruins, this one, on the canyon rim about 100 yards east of Kolb Studio, resembled a collapsed ruin. Its original chimney and low-slung roof looked like a pile of rocks and seemed barely higher than the canyon rim. To add to the effect, Colter planted indigenous plants on the roof. After its completion in 1914, tourists came here to buy souvenirs or to photograph the canyon from the deck, where a high-power telescope was placed. Today, Lookout Studio still serves much the same purpose.

" Grand Teton Farm "
, published by Whitman Guild 500 (Western Publishing Company); No. 4615-32; 500 pieces; 18" x 15½" when assembled
Photograph: No credit given.

The picture is of the small Mormon homestead called the Moulton Farm and is not marked on the official National Park Service visitor map. This small barn is located just off Antelope Flats Road on Mormon Row at the southern edge of Grand Teton National Park.

This farm is one of several in the Mormon Row Historic District of the Park on the National Register of Historic Places. Homesteader T. Alma Moulton began construction of the barn in 1913 and his sons added on to it as they could through the years, finally completing it 26 years later, in 1939. Today, the Moulton barn has become an emblematic icon of Jackson Hole and the Old West and is one of the most photographed barns in the country. This is the same barn as portrayed in several different puzzles over the years, including the 1985 Springbok Panoramic puzzle entitled " Home Sweet Homestead ".
