Grantsville's first decline was in 1885. The town's on again, off again life has continued throughout the years due to improved mining methods. A large portion of the town was destroyed in the 1980s by a modern day mining company. Grantsville is completely abandoned today. According to our research, a graveyard is in the area. So far, both a ground and air search haven't been able to locate it. With both wood for campfires and water available, Grantsville is an excellent place to camp. Grantsville is featured on our video GHOST TOWN TRAVELS.
UPDATE: After searching for the cemetery for many years, we finally located it in 2011. There is no longer a road up the hill to the cemetery. Hiking in is the only way to see what little is left. Only mounds and depressions mark the site, along with fallen wooden markers and one standing perimeter fence post.
This fence post gave away the location of the Cemetery
Only piles of wood mark the graves
