GRAFTON

NAME: Grafton
COUNTY: Washington
ROADS: 2WD
Grid #: 7
CLIMATE: Cool winter with possible snow, warm summer.
BEST TIME TO VISIT:
Anytime.
COMMENTS: Right off the highway.The first house you come across, the church and two building are viewable by the public. However, there is a long, dirt road that leads to an area where there is another house, but it is blocked by a locked gate and "No Trespassing" signs. I don't know if there are any more buildings beyond that, but I'd really love to know! Submitted by: Kevin J. Guhl
REMAINS: Many buildings.

Grafton was first settled in 1859 one mile below its present town site. In January of 1862 the town was completely washed away by a flood. The people rebuilt the town a mile further up stream at its present site. By 1864 about 28 families lived here. There were many log houses, a post office, church, school and community hall. The town was deserted in 1866 due to Indian attacks. The people moved back in 1868. By 1920 only 3 families still lived here. Grafton has had parts of several movies shot here. One movie that was partly shot here was Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.
