Nightmare to find. Signage tiny and difficult to see. Long, long track with hardly any indication you are nearly there. And then the cemetery appears. Again, no signage to the reconstructed houses. Which we eventually found. ET VOILA!
An absolutely splendid, evocative, moving, historic group...More
A sad story of a small town. A beautiful area. Near Smithsonian Butte and an old historic bridge over the Virgin River. A short drive down an old dirt road, marked by small brown signs. Cemetery is to the left and the town is to...More
Grafton, Utah, is a ghost town located south of Zion National Park, near the town of Rockville in Washington County. It is said to be the most photographed ghost town in the Old West. It has been featured as a location for several motion pictures,...More
I have lived in Southern Utah for about 10 years and we are going to be moving next year so I decided to try and see all the things I haven't gotten to over the years. It takes less then 1 hour to get to...More
Having visited Smithsonian Butte last Sunday, my hubby and I decided to check out Grafton Ghost Town after hearing it from a friend. In Rockville drive on UT 9, turn right onto Bridge Rd, take a right again at the intersection, then follow the signs...More
The dusty dirt road out to Grafton lends itself to the idea of a ghost town, but Grafton itself is not typical of what one might envision as an abandoned ghost town. There are obvious signs of “life” around this ghost town as evidenced by...More
This is one of those places where the journey is half the fun! The dirt road was bumpy but my kids got a kick out of that. The signage is really good and the history was explained on the site markers. Neat little stop for...More

I do not recall there being any big dips in the road. We saw a couple “regular” 4 door cars in the vicinity. It was a drivable hard packed dirt road. The road will definitely be bumpy and you should expect your car to be... More
I do not recall there being any big dips in the road. We saw a couple “regular” 4 door cars in the vicinity. It was a drivable hard packed dirt road. The road will definitely be bumpy and you should expect your car to be covered with dirt/dust, but you should be fine during dry conditions. I am not sure when you are visiting but I would maybe be hesitant during wet and snowy conditions.
