Teton County Historic Preservation Board

The TCHPB is made up of a mix of skilled preservation professionals, ranging from historians to professional architects. The board reviews demolition permits in the town of Jackson and seeks to preserve and/or relocated historic structures slated for demolition. The board excels in offering sound preservation consultation to property owners who are looking for guidance on their historic buildings. The board is also committed to finding solutions that respect both the property owners' needs and the important history present in Teton County. The board's role in the community is in a period of expansion as it continues to articulate its mission to identify, protect, and preserve Teton County’s architectural, archaeological, and cultural history while also advocating the use of preservation as an important tool for responsible development across the county. The board believes the Alliance for Historic Wyoming's commitment to preserving Wyoming's historic places is an excellent model for what can be done on the local level and are always excited to support the cause of historic preservation.
