We visited Jacob Hamblin home as a family. It was very interesting to see how difficult things were for those who went before us.

I've been here several times, and each time I learn something new. On a guided tour, you will be led through the house and told why Jacob Hamblin moved there, and how he contended with the hostile Indians of the area.

We love visiting the mormon pioneer sites in St. George. The couple missionaries do a great job and the home itself is really interesting.

It is a fun tour and gives information about the area. Interesting to know that the home has been so close to being flooded.

The homesite was easy to find, very well maintained and original. The staf was courteous and very knowledgable with the history of the house and it's occupants. Recommend this as a short stop on the local history of St George and the Mormon church.
