Jackson Hole National Monument
Jackson Hole National Monument was a wildlife reserve in
Jackson Hole, the majority of which is now a part of Grand Teton National Parkin Wyoming, United States. It was proclaimed by Franklin Delano Rooseveltin 1943, and met with considerable opposition. Roosevelt later vetoed a bill that would have disestablished it. Jackson Hole is named after a fur trapper named Davey Jackson.
A bill merging most of Jackson Hole National Monument (except for its southern extent, which was added to the
National Elk Refuge) into Grand Teton National Park was signed into law by President Harry S. Trumanon September 14, 1950. Jackson Hole National Monument then ceased to exist. As a concession to local opposition, the law adding Jackson Hole to Grand Teton also modified the Antiquities Act, limiting the future power of a president to proclaim National Monuments in Wyoming.
