Abbott Way Station – Circa 1917

On this site was one off the first rest-over businesses in the Virgin Valley. Here an early version of an adobe brick house was used as a small grocery store with a separate wash house that had shower and laundry facilities, and a way station (campground) for freighters and travelers. Hay was also sold to those traveling by horse drawn wagons and buggies.
