The village of Grafton is near the geographically significant Oak Ridges Moraine at Rice Lake. Grafton was originally called Grover's Tavern until March, 1832. The original Grover's Tavern, the namesake building of the village, still stands today as the Grafton Village Inn, a restaurant and B & B in the heart of the village. Grafton is an excellent example of the type of villages that flourished in the 19th century and had a bustling port for many years, shipping grain, barley and other commodities to communities along the Great Lakes.
