Sommers Homestead Living History Museum
The historical landmark features a bunkhouse, an icehouse, a garage with ranging tools and implements, an underground cellar, a barn, and a gift shop with many unique books.You can walk through a restored, 100-year-old, 2-story log house with unique furnishings and objects from some of the earliest pioneer families in the Green River Valley. Young ones can enjoy playing with the working water well pump, ringing the old-style dinner bell, and playing on the wagon-wheel merry-go-round and teeter totter.
What makes this so place so special is that the Sommers family placed their entire ranch under the a 19,000 acre Sommers-Grindstone Conservation Easement and the ranch will remain undeveloped, keeping it as it was in the early 1900's surrounded by its rich western landscape.
The ranch is located 13 miles north from Pinedale and is well worth the scenic drive and makes for a fun family outing.To get there from Pinedale, go west on US 191 approximately 6 miles and turn south onto the East Green River Road at Trappers Point, just before the Trapper's Point Wildlife Overpass. Stay on the East Green River Road, a gravel road that follows the high bluffs for 7.3 miles. The homestead is at the turnoff for the Sommers Fishing Access road (the second fishing access on that road).
