This place is a little out off the track but its a nice place to visit. It's filled with history and fun for young ones. Depending on the missionaries on the door, it's a fun experience for the family. There's original pieces to see and loads to learn. If you're interested in the pioneer movement then this place is right... More

If you enjoy pioneer history you'll enjoy this tour, but depending on who the missionaries working that day are it can be a little off putting for none members of the LDS church.

Missionaries tell you the story of the Hamblin family settling in St. George. It is interesting to see the artifacts and hear the story.

Jacob was a good friend of the Indians and worked hard to keep relations between them and the settlers a positive one. The home is two levels and requires climbing stairs to see the upper level. And it is full of fun stories... More

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.
