You’ll Know You’re Here When You See the Arch
THE ELKHORN ARCH
Towering over the four lanes of Highway 89 in downtown Afton, the Elkhorn Arch is the centerpiece of the town. This arch is made out of 3,011 elk antlers, making this the largest elk horn arch in the world. This unique structure gives Afton its signature rustic charm.
Outside of Afton resides the largest rhythmic spring in the world. A rhythmic spring is a rare cold water spring that starts and stops flowing over a regular time scale. Think of it like a geyser crossed with a river. The Intermittent Spring is not only one of 100 rhythmic springs in the world but it’s also the largest in the world.
An Old Western Town Through and Through
Afton, Wyoming was founded in 1885 by European and American pioneers that were gradually settling the west. The settlement was named “Afton” after a Scottish river that reminded settlers of the Intermittent Spring. After over 130 years, Afton still keeps its small-town vibe.
