Historic Grafton Illinois

The history of Grafton, Illinois is tied to the two rivers, the Illinois and the Mississippi, that come together at this town's riverside location. Boat making, fishing, plus quarrying limestone caused this town to be established in 1832. The Old Boat Works, which once crafted paddle wheelers and then later PT boats, now hosts antique and craft shows throughout the year. The Schafer's Wharf Historic District was once one of the largest commercial fishing centers that was located on the Mississippi Rivers during the late 1800's. Today, Grafton's industry is tourism. With Bald Eagle watching, the Sam Vadalabene Bike Trail running through the town, Eckert's Orchard nearby, Pere Marquette State Park a few miles away, the Grafton Ferry, and many restaurants, antique shops and annual festivals, the small town of Grafton draws many visitor each year.
