The Hardeman Barns, located in Wilson, Wyoming, were built in the 1940s to support Gerrit Hardeman’s successful cattle business. Today, the barns stand as a leading example of Jackson Hole’s ranching history. The property consists of six buildings, varying in size and character, as well as condition. Currently, the property is owned by the Jackson Hole Land Trust and used as the main campus for the Teton Raptor Center. Wyoming State Parks and Cultural Resources along with the Teton Raptor Center contracted Dubbe Moulder Architects to assess the existing condition of the barns as well as make preservation recommendations so that the property can be appropriately preserved while accommodating various future uses.
DMA’s final report includes an evaluation of the condition and adaptability of the buildings on the property for long term use as a facility of the Teton Raptor Center; addressing building code compliance and ADA requirements. In addition, the report outlines recommendations and cost estimates for stabilizing and rehabilitating the buildings.
This report is the first step in the planning process for stabilizing and rehabilitating the Hardeman Barns so that they can be effectively used in the future while also preserving an important part of the local history.
