State historical organization features 1916 Gros Ventre homestead

(Jackson, Wyo.) - Today, the Alliance for Historic Wyoming featured the Andy Chambers Homestead, which is the most intact homestead remaining from the original Gros Ventre settlement. The property includes a small log cabin, a machine shed, a garage, a gas and oil storage shed, a barn, a saddle shed, a chicken coop, a granary, and an outhouse. The Alliance for Historic Wyoming tells the story of the homestead including how a large family lived in such a small space far from town. Researchers interviewed Inez Chambers Jacobson, the daughter of the original homesteaders, and she stated that "the unfinished attic was divided into roughly two bedrooms for the children. The parents slept downstairs, and on hot summer nights the family would sleep out on the back porch." Read the full story on the Andy Chambers Homestead here .
