Grafton, Washington County, Utah


Grafton is located in eastern Washington County about two miles west of Rockville and just south of the Virgin River. Grafton was first settled in 1859. Was also known as Wheeler. The town was finally abandoned in 1921 after years of battling the floods and drought of the seemingly calm Virgin River. Some wonderful, hardy families lived in Grafton and a lot of their descendants still live in nearby towns of Rockville, Springdale, and Virgin. Grafton is best known for its old buildings that were used in scenes in the movie, "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid." The buildings are now in danger of being destroyed by vandalism. -CBA
