Circleville, Utah – September 2022 – Butch Cassidy’s Boyhood Home

The small town of Circleville, Utah has the claim to fame of being the boyhood hometown of Butch Cassidy.

They celebrate this fact by maintaining his boyhood home.

Butch lived here under his birth name of Robert Leroy Parker from the age of 13 until he was 18, when he started working at the nearby Jim Marshall Ranch. It was here he met Mike Cassidy, who taught him (among other things) how to handle horses and guns. The rest, as they say, is history.

The farm has a collection of old implements that post date the time Butch would’ve lived there.

The valley the cabin is located is very scenic.

Butch Cassidy’s boyhood home is not something most people would make a destination, but if you are passing by it is worth the stop to stretch your legs and check out a bit of Utah history.
