In 1889, five Mormon families pioneered Jackson Hole making the trip of 28 miles in 14 days over Teton Pass. Their leader was Elijah N. Wilson, known among the people as "Uncle Nick" - famous Indian scout and Pony Express rider. They found 18 single men living in the valley. These families established homes and later built a fort for protection against the Indians. The first L.D.S. services were held on Easter Sunday 1890. Sylvester Wilson was the first presiding Elder.
