Grafton is where some the bicycle scene from Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid was filmed. It is near Rockville, Utah and is interesting to wander through. It's not big - there are just a few buildings but there are information signs near the old church. You can make a donation near the church too. Use GPS to get there. Respect the signs on places you shouldn't enter. Not all buildings welcome visitors.

Love to find cute and interesting things off the beaten path. This place hits that mark. Just off the main highway on way back to Interstate 15. It’s tucked away behind some pretty ranch homes which made for a really pretty drive. Makes for a quick pit stop and only took about 30 mins or so. I’d recommend you stop in!

The Ghost town of Grafton was very neat to visit. Must use GPS coordinates to find it as itis definitely off of the beaten path but offers some of the most beautiful views of the mountains in the area. Was interested due that this area and the schoolhouse in Grafton was used in Redford's Sundance Kid movie. You are able to go in and walk through the houses, but the schoolhouse/church was closed. There is a stoop on the side of the schoolhouse to allow you to view the inside through the window. The historical society that has restored the buildings are obviously still in progress. It's just a self guided tour of the ghost town and cemetery that you pass on the way in. Donation boxes are on site but no one stationed there to answer questions. Interesting history but didn't see any ghosts! 😉

I‘m a huge US history buff and LOVE ghost towns, so I was very excited to visit Grafton. Note that much of the property surrounding the church and house are off limits, but that you’re able to peek inside the church and can walk inside one of the houses. There’s a sign out front that makes this very unclear, though after checking online, I found that they allow touring of these two buildings. When we stopped by, there was literally NO ONE else around which was great, though my wife was kind of spooked and opted to stay in the car while I looked around on my own. To be honest, there’s not a whole lot to see, though just being able to walk around an historic ghost town with no crowds was a great experience nonetheless. There is also a town cemetery with old tombstones from the former inhabitants of Grafton. It’s a short distance from the town, and is right off the main road that you drive down to get to Grafton. Side note: this is a short drive from Zion National Park. The road to Grafton is an unpaved gravel road which kicks up a LOT of dirt and dust, so we made sure to be mindful and respectful of the people whose property we were passing on the way to Grafton.
