Jackson Wyoming often is confused with Jackson Hole Wyoming, but there should be no confusion about the beauty of this majestic place. The word “hole” was added to Jackson because the men who lived there long ago used it for describing a valley that is surrounded entirely by mountains. Their description of Jackson Hole fits this wondrous place to a T. The town is home to the state’s first ski area, which is called Snow King Ski Area and was opened in 1939. Adding to the area’s beauty is the statistic that 100+ bird species, 60+ mammal species and half a dozen fish species call Jackson Wyoming home. It makes sense, then, why so many choose to purchase Jackson hole homes for sale.
It is no wonder either why Jackson Wyoming real estate is prime for moviemaking. Movie legend John Wayne’s first speaking role in a movie … the 1932 film “The Big Trail” … was filmed in town, adding to the worth of Jackson Wyoming real estate. Since then, other celebrities and filmmakers have flocked here to permanently pick up their slices of gorgeous Jackson wyoming real estate. Movie stars have homes here, as do the wealthy, who have searched with the help of Jackson Hole luxury real estate professionals and have found glorious Jackson hole land for sale or Jackson Hole luxury homes available.
