The heart of the town of Jackson, WY, Jackson Town Square (which is technically named George Washington Memorial Park) epitomizes the town of Jackson itself. A blend of 19th century log cabins next to modern western architecture, high-end boutiques next to western supply stores, it displays the unique blend of the people that call it home. The bulk of Jackson’s shops, restaurants and bars are located around Town Square, making it a shopper’s delight. Part of Hollywood history (it was the setting for the climactic fight scene between Clint Eastwood and Tank Murdock in the film "Any Which Way But Loose"), Jackson Town Square is also home to the often photographed antler arches. Curved over the four corners of the Town Square, these arches are created from antlers that elk shed annual and contain about 10,000 pounds (about 4536 kilograms) of antlers.
Jackson Town Square is located in downtown Jackson, at the corner of Broadway and Cache streets. You can hire a carriage for a ride around town here as well as catch the public transportation. During the summer, traffic will come to a halt at around 6:15 p.m. when actors present a reenactment of a shoot-out between outlaws and the local keepers of the peace, which has been a tradition since 1957.
