Mormon Row and Grand Tetons

In 1896 homesteaders created a north-south community lined up along a central road. These Mormon “line villages” were also popularly known as “Mormon Rows” throughout the west.

The nickname directly referred to the spatial organization of the villages, as well as the religion they practiced. These communities were built upon cooperation, sharing resources and workloads.

Such cooperative land practices were based directly out of the Book of Mormon, which also described the types of houses the faithful should live in.
