Menor’s Ferry and the Noble Cabin are near the park headquarters in Moose. The historical site was home to Bill Menor in the late 1800s, one of the area’s first settlers. His original homestead cabin and country store, built in 1892, face the river. Adjacent to the cabin is Menor’s Ferry, an in-use replica of the original ferry that was used as a vital crossing of the Snake River. The vessel consisted of a platform set on two pontoons. Pulleys were attached to the fixed cables on each shore. The river’s current propelled the ferry, moving sideways across the river. The Noble Cabin was moved from Cottonwood Creek in 1918 when Maude Noble purchased Menor’s Ferry. The cabin is currently a small natural history museum with an exhibit of historical photographs and a look at the life of early settlers and pioneers in Jackson Hole.
