Teton County rodeo historic designation

The land under Jackson’s rodeo arena, surrounded by land used each year for the Teton County Fair, would qualify for the National Register of Historic Places, a recent survey found. The Jackson Town Council has asked for the application from the Historic Preservation Board to be withdrawn until it has time to review it.

After a volunteer board caught the Jackson Town Council off guard, the town has pushed pause on an application from the Historic Preservation Board to seek a national historic designation for the land underneath the Jackson Hole Rodeo.

The application came as a surprise to town councilors, but by the time it came to their attention, Town Manager Tyler Sinclair had already requested that it be withdrawn from the State Historic Preservation Office, which administers the federally funded National Register of Historic Places.
