Information on:

Wolverton Mill

406 South 100 West

Elevation 4300 feet. In 1901, Edwin T. Wolverton came to this area in search of a fabled Spanish gold mine. By 1921, he had constructed this mill in hopes of the great riches he would soon realize. The gold proved elusive, and long after Wolverton had given up hope of the lush life, the BLM reclaimed the mill. The restored gold mill is on display at the office in Hanksville: a testimony to the dreams that lured so many to such a desolate country.

Wow! What a mill. Exceeded all expectations (which were extremely high). Fantastic self-guided tour pamphlet inside the mill with detailed information about the mill. Would highly recommend the city of Hanksville to give real tours of the mill. To the two girls on the ATV who thought my friend and I were lost: We knew exactly where we were.
