Grafton Ghost Town Cemetery Sunset

Grafton is a ghost town, just south of Zion National Park in Washington County, Utah, United States. Said to be the most photographed ghost town in the West, it has been featured as a location in several films, including 1929’s In Old Arizona—the first talkie filmed outdoors—and the classic Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. The nearest inhabited town is Rockville.

To get to Grafton, you cross the Rockville bridge built for the National Park Service in 1924 to provide a link between Zion National Park and the North Rim area of Grand Canyon National Park.

  1. Yeah, diphtheria was a big child-killer in the 19th century, and there were some nasty epidemics in the late century. It also affected horses. Scarlet fever, too.

    I do wonder about that swing accident that killed two teens. How high was that swing?
