Torrey

What not to miss

Old schoolhouse

Torrey is the Eastern Gateway to Scenic Byway 12 and lies about 9 miles west of Capitol Reef National Park. It was settled in the 1880s and reportedly named after Colonel Jay Torrey, one of Theodore Roosevelt’s Rough Riders. The town’s original log schoolhouse is located along the cottonwood tree-lined Main Street (Highway 24) and offers a look into the past depicting pioneer education. The Big Apple, an open-air dance hall, is the site of regular community events and is also located along Main Street in the center of town.
