Just west of Zion National Park, this picturesque ghost town was established by zealous 19th-century Mormon pioneers, who planted fruit orchards and irrigated farm fields alongside the Virgin River.

The last residents only left in the 1940s, and the ghost town has been restored painstakingly since then.
