Historic Miller House to open one winter day - tomorrow

(Jackson, Wyo.) - The historic Miller House on the National Elk Refuge will be open to the public tomorrow for a unique winter visit to the site. Though the Miller House is only open seasonally from late May to mid–September, Refuge staff will open the door to the historic landmark on Saturday, February 27 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Visitors to the Miller House that day will be able to enjoy the home as hundreds of elk winter nearby. Refuge staff offered a similar one–day opening last winter, and the event was very popular. Nearly 250 people visited the site, with a mix of both locals and out–of–town visitors taking advantage of the winter opportunity. “We were pleased with the number of guests we had last winter and expect a good crowd again this year,” said winter naturalist Julie Stetson, who organized the event. Both naturalists and volunteers will be on hand to greet visitors and discuss Refuge history. The Miller House is located on the Refuge Road, ¾ mile north of the Refuge’s entrance at the end of East Broadway Avenue in Jackson. Entrance to the Miller House is free of charge. The Jackson Hole & Greater Yellowstone Visitor Center is located at 532 N. Cache Street in Jackson. *Feature Photo: Daylight draws to an end as alpine glow lights up the Teton Range behind the historic Miller House. h/t USFWS / Ann Hough, National Elk Refuge volunteer / Pitchengine Communities* #buckrail #news #whatshappening
