Standard Oil heir John D. Rockefeller Jr., after visiting the then-96,000-acre Teton National Park, began buying private land in the Jackson Hole valley with the intention of expanding the park. Opposition stalled the plan until the 1940s, when President Franklin Roosevelt established the Jackson Hole National Monument. The monument and park were combined in 1950 to cover 310,000 acres of extreme topography. Rising over 7,000 feet above the Jackson Valley floor, Grand Teton, the highest peak in the 40-mile long Teton Range, stands at 13,770 feet.
