Teton County was organized in 1921 from Lincoln County with Jackson Hole being the county seat. Before Lincoln County was formed both Teton and Lincoln were part of Uinta County. Teton County, Wyoming is one of the few counties in the United States to border its namesake in another state—in this case, Teton County, Idaho. Named for the Teton Mountains. Indians called them Tee-win-ot, three pinnacles. French trappers applied the name "Les Trois Tetons".
Towns are that of Jackson, with other census places being those of Alta, Hoback, Moose Wilson Road, Rafter J. Ranch, South Park, Teton Village, and Wilson. Other places are Kelly, Moran, and Colter Bay.
