Long Significance Description:
The McCollister Residential Complex is significant under NR Criterion B, a property that is associated with the lives of persons significant in our past. The period of significance is 1953 - 1987, the time that Paul McCollister resided at the property. The individual associated with this property, Paul W. McCollister, exercised considerable influence in the development of Jackson Hole as it made the transition from an area characterized by dwindling dude ranch activity, long winters of lethargic economic activity, and an unclear future for tourism to the flourishing resort based upscale community that it has became. Between 1953 and 1968, McCollister developed the idea, commissioned studies of feasibility, examined alternatives, created plans, found financing, and began construction of the resort complex at Teton Village. By 1968 the business complex included not only an aerial tram and lodges, but also a condominium apartment complex with eight units, as well as four restaurants, a service station, and more businesses. With the realization of McCollister’s dream the winters at Jackson Hole in winter changed from slow and stagnant to become a home of world class winter sports and resorts, which has dramatically changed the economics of Jackson Hole.

Long Physical Description:
The main residence of the McCollister Residential Complex is a single story, L-shaped building constructed of logs and rock on a concrete foundation, with a partial basement. The gabled roof is covered with wooden shingles. Large picture windows and sliding glass doors take advantage of the view to the west, across Antelope Flats toward the Teton Range. The remainder of windows are horizontally hung double sash six-lite storm windows. The logs have a grey-washed appearance and the building has saddle notches with pointed ends. A large stone chimney is on the north side and the rock work is complemented by a partial rock wall on the north facade which is near the main entrance.
