The town was named after Silvestre VĂ©lez de Escalante, a Franciscan missionary during the mid-1700’s. It is situated smack in the lower middle part of the State, along Utah Scenic Byway 12, and is surrounded by part of the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, and the Petrified National Forest.
