With 360 lots varying from .25 acres to .5 acres and a range of single family homes and townhomes, Rafter J is set in an idyllic meadow surrounded by open space and criss-crossed by local favorite Flat Creek.

In 1979, Rafter J was the first planned community in Teton County to offer homesites to working families. While that demographic is alive and well at Rafter J, second-homeowners also blend into the current mix.

Rafter J history

Rafter J became the first Planned Unit Development (PUD) in Jackson Hole in 1978 when Floyd King, Jerry Wilson and Chuck Luton subdivided the 600-acre Brown Ranch into 360 lots along the meandering Flat Creek.

The development got off to a slow start in a soft market, but now tends to be light on inventory. The trio of developers designated 60 percent of Rafter J as open space and grouped homesites into the remainder.

Upon first sale, lots cost $17,000 apiece with the imagined outcome of never selling for more than $30,000. However, Rafter J with its pristine setting and proximity to town has shown to be investment-worthy over the years and starting prices for a lot long ago smashed through that envisioned ceiling.
