Welcome to Grafton, Illinois! The Meeting of the Great Rivers National Scenic Byway bends and curves with the Mississippi River, winding its way to the confluence of the Mississippi and Illinois rivers...and right to the doorstep for Grafton. The welcome mat is out and ready as you experience the hometown flavor and down-to-earth qualities of this real river town. Meander along Main Street browsing the shops for unique gifts, antiques and fresh produce.
