Shacks on Racks, a local nonprofit organization founded by Esther Judge-Lennox, works to relocate Jackson homes slated for demolition as the lots they sit on are bought and redeveloped. 

The house at 10 E. Simpson Ave. found a new home Sunday, as Vern Woolstenhulme of Teton Transport and his crew trucked the 1930s home from Cache and Simpson to the National Elk Refuge, where it will help alleviate the Refuge's employee housing shortage.

Grand Teton Association put up the funds necessary for the cross-town move. The historic home will sit at the Refuge's administrative and employee housing area until a foundation is laid at a later date.
