Grand Teton National Park was first established by the United States Congress in 1929. It originally encompassed the Teton Range and its foothills. From 1930 to 1950 more land including much of Jackson Hole, the valley the Snake River runs through, was acquired and donated to create the massive and stunningly beautiful park we know and love today.
