1965 Jackson Hole Menu

This menu shows the Chapel of Transfiguration in Grand Teton National Park. Unusually for a church, this chapel has a window behind the alter so parishioners can enjoy a view of the Tetons in case the sermon is boring. As Wikipedia notes, the chapel was built in 1925 “to serve guests and employees of the dude ranches that stretched north of Jackson along the base of the Teton Range.”

Though dated more than a year later, this City of Los Angeles menu’s offerings are very similar to those of the Disneyland menu that appeared here a couple of days ago. Most of the prices have increased by 5 to 15 cents, and one or two a la carte items, such as kadota figs, are off the menu, but other than that, the main change is that menu items that used to be in all-caps are now in upper- and lower-case letters.

The parking lot today might be a little bigger, but the photo below shows that the Chapel of the Transfiguration still offers dazzling views of the Tetons. Indeed, it may be the most-photographed rural church in the world.
