Jackson Hole Elk Antler Arches

One of the most iconic landmarks in our state, the Elk Antler Arches flank Town Square and are a must-see during your trip. The original was first built at the entrance of George Washington Memorial Park by the local Rotary Club in 1953. There are four arches – one for each corner of the square, and each one will last 30-40 years before needing to be rebuilt again.
