HURRICANE, Utah –Washington County has just completed construction of a new building at the Legacy Park complex. The new building is named the Grafton Building and is located at 339 South 5500 West in Hurricane, Utah. The Building consists of 5,956 square feet of office area, and 22,165 square feet of exhibit hall and associated areas.
Washington County recently renamed the Washington County Regional Park to the Washington County Legacy Park and is naming the buildings and arenas inside the park after historical sites and towns to honor the County’s rich history.
The new building was named after the town Grafton, settled in 1859. Located near Rockville, Grafton was known for its early agricultural efforts, frequent river flooding, and stunning view of what is now Zion National Park. The still-standing school, pioneer homes, and cemetery are all that remain. These resilient pioneer structures are a stark reminder of hardworking settlers who toiled to create the lasting legacy we seek to honor and preserve.
The Grafton Building will house the USU Extension Office and provide a large Exhibit Hall for various activities during the fair and other events. The Exhibit Hall may be rented for private events such as, basketball and volleyball tournaments or large gatherings. It includes new landscaping that allows for open area markets and other outdoor use.
Washington County recognizes MRW Design as the architect and Watts Construction Inc., as the contractor. The metal building was purchased from CO Building Systems, Inc., located in Ephriam, Utah.
There will be a ribbon cutting ceremony on Monday, August 7th at 9:00 AM for the Grafton Building.
