History of Aventure, Utah

ADVENTURE
Adventure (Washington) was between Grafton and Rockville near the Virgin River. It was founded in 1860 by Phillip Klingensmith and others from Iron County. Adventure was abandoned when flooding and other problems sent the settlers up-river to a new townsite called Rockville. Adventure was named because the residents felt it was truly an adventure to move into and attempt to tame this primitive, desert region. Today Adventure is a ghost town site.
