I stopped by the Hilltop store at the old site of Colton, Utah a few years back, I got some cool pictures and some pictures of old pictures. The guy who runs it talked about growing up there and told cool stories, like Butch Cassidy coming in to see his grandpa, , he had a picture of them together.
It’s pretty cool and worth a stop if you are driving through Spanish Fork Canyon.
It used to be called Pleasant Valley Junction, changed to Colton in 1898.
The photos below are taken by me if in color, and the black and white photos are pictures the man in the store had that I took pictures of with my camera.
