Teton Valley was known originally as Pierre's Hole. Rich in beaver, it was a favorite stamping ground for British and American fur traders and trappers between 1819-1840.
"Old Pierre" Tevanitagon, an Iroquois Indian fur trapper of the Hudson Bay Company, gave his name to this beaver-rich valley. Pierre's Hole was the scene of the annual rendezvous of mountain men and suppliers - "The Great Rocky Mountain Fair" - in 1832. That wild party ended in a free-for-all battle with the Gros Ventre Indians, which the trappers and their Indian friends won. The valley was permanently settled in 1882.
