Nicer than most ghost towns

Grafton, Utah, seemed like a good idea at the time. Farmable land by a river, mild climate, amazing scenery... But the town was abandoned when flooding and troubles with the native population became more than they could handle. Today there are four buildings and some barns standing. Another is being restored/rebuilt by the Grafton Heritage Partnership.

If you've been to Zion National Park several times already and want to experience something different in the area, turn on Bridge Street in Rockville and follow the small signs. If the restoration crew is working, you might be greeted and followed around by a friendly pit bull.
