MORE THAN 97% OF TETON COUNTY’S 2.7 MILLION ACRES, WHICH INCLUDE JACKSON HOLE, ARE PERMANENTLY PRESERVED. This means that just 3% of the Jackson Hole valley is privately held. Of that, more than two-thirds is already developed or preserved through conservation easements.
Jackson Hole’s commitment to retaining the character, lifestyle and natural resources of its unparalleled and magnificently beautiful area has resulted in the creation of a highly desirable community that continues to attract full- and part-time residents from around the world.
Wyoming’s wealth-friendly tax status and Jackson Hole’s lifestyle benefits have created incredible demand and diversity in housing options. Recognized as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and the U.S. Department of the Interior, Jackson Hole’s wilderness represents some of the most renowned natural beauty and ecological significance on the planet. The economic benefits our state’s residents enjoy are certainly rivaled only by the health and lifestyle benefits.
