Bar B C Dude Ranch

 

 
 

Read All About It:

The Bar B C Dude Ranch is a historic district consisting of 37 resources: a lodge, cabins, a dining hall, service/laundry buildings, barns, and corrals on the western banks of the Snake River above Moose, Wyoming. The district buildings, constructed in 1912, all are built in a style referred to as dude ranch vernacular characterized by log construction. The historic district is significant because as a dude ranch it helped define and set the standards for the local Jackson Hole industry. It is also important because it was built and operated by Struthers Burt, a local author and industry leader of dude ranching. Along with Horace Carncross, Burt operated the ranch as a guest facility until Burt's and later Carncross' retirement. It was then operated by the Corse family until after World War II when the ranch buildings became summer rental cabins.
