Moulton Barn - Black and White

This Iconic Sturcture may look like any other classic old barn in passing. But with a little research one will find out that it is more than that. Located in the Antelope flates area of Grand Teton National Park, the Moultons were one of the more famous families to settle in this area. After hear from other Morman families that there was rich soil to be farmed, they set out to make this part of western Wyoming their home. Establishing thier homestead was't easy to to harsh winters. At the time, Thomas Alma Moulton didn't realize the barn he built and added on to for over 30 years would be come one of the more iconic landmarks of Wyoming. In 2013 the barn celebrated its 100 year birthday. While the Moulton Family stopped working and living on the land in 1961, they still gather every memorial weekend, the Moulton family gathers in Antelope Flats to talk history, catch up on family and most importantly, plan the much needed repairs to keep the barn standing. While many that see this barn in person or graced in photos see it as a beautiful old historic barn. The Moulton's, on the other hand, know this is a symbol of the sacrifice and what it took their family and the surrounding community to survie.
