JACKSON, Wyo. — The red house is on the move!

With the help of Shacks on Racks, the house that once stood on the corner of Broadway and Willow is on its way to Star Valley for continued use as a residence.

This week, construction crews began work on the Jackson Hole Historical Society & Museum’s (JHHSM) new campus by first relocating the historical house that occupied the site.

In preparation for the move, museum staff have been documenting memories of the home from the Stewart and Rooks families who used to live there. The two families are descendants of Roy and Genevieve Van Vleck, who first settled on the block.

“This special location on the historic Van Vleck Block has a history of bringing together family, friends and community. We’re honored to continue that tradition at the new history museum,” said JHHSM Executive Director Morgan Jaouen. “We’re also grateful to be entering the final phase of our fundraising efforts and look forward to welcoming everyone in the community to the new history museum in 2024.”
