The neighborhood preserves a bit of Jackson Hole’s ranching heritage and also reflects the conservation-mindedness of the valley today.
Located on the west bank of the Snake River, the subdivision was originally part of the Hardeman family ranch, the biggest ranch in Wilson, and is named for the HHR cattle brand. The original Hardeman barns still stand but today are used to host nonprofit groups rather than house livestock and ranch implements. Though no longer a working ranch, HHR still has that open-range feel, thanks to conservation easements that protect much of the original land from development.
HHR was created in 1996 and consists of 27 lots of about 3 to 4 acres in size. The home sites are flat, and nearly all have or share sizeable ponds that attract native birds. Natural vegetation, including willows and sagebrush, adorns the subdivision, and newer home sites have also been landscaped with spruce, pine and cottonwood trees. Protective covenants ensure that yards remain natural and uncluttered. The lots have wells and are connected to the Aspens water and sewer district. Homes in HHR average 5,000 square feet in size, and the architectures includes a mix of Western, farmhouse and contemporary styles. Homeowners enjoy nice views of Sleeping Indian and Rendezvous mountains as well as the Wilson faces. With the Wilson Elementary School located right next door, HHR is ideal for young families, but it’s equally well suited to homeowners of any age who want to live in a quiet mountain-town neighborhood where all of Jackson Hole’s manmade and natural amenities are practically right out their front door. The neighborhood offers access to Fish Creek and is close to the county’s bike-path system. The shops and restaurants of the town of Wilson are right at hand, and it takes only 10minutes to drive to downtown or to Teton Village and Jackson Hole Mountain Resort.
