Details about Jackson Hole
- The town of Jackson elected the first all female town council in 1920. Wyoming was also the first state in the country to allow women the right to vote, serve on juries, and hold public office. This is why Wyoming is known as the “Equality State”!
- Jackson is home to the world’s-longest running shootout. Beginning in 1957, the shootout can be seen Monday-Saturday on Town Square to this day!
- There have been many feature films shot on location in Jackson Hole including: "Shane," "Rocky IV," "Django Unchained," and "Any Which Way You Can."
