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.

I went for the history and getting to know the town. When I pulled into the parking lot, I noticed a giant sign that said CLOSED but there were a few cars in the lot. I called and they said they were open, just forgot to flip the sign. I was the only one there at the time for a... More

This little pioneer home has quite a story to tell. I enjoyed this visit to see and learn more about Jacob Hamblin. He was a great missionary and friend to the Native Americans in the area of Southern Utah. You have to drive through St. George from I-15, out to Santa Clara, Utah, which takes a few minutes, but is... More

This is a great historical site that gives you a glimpse into what it would have been like to be an early settler in this area. The LDS missionaries on site are extremely knowledgable about the site as well as Jacob Hamblin, who was a respected friend and ally of the Native Americans.

I took my elderly parents and friends of theirs to the Hamblin Home. I had not been there myself and was pleasantly surprised at how much I learned and now appreciate what these pioneers have done for us. I am also glad I live today! It is a great leisurely tour. I highly recommend it for a spring or fall... More

If you're a member of the LDS Church or not its a great tour. I leafed some history about Southern Utah that I didn't know and the hardships that some of the early settlers had to endure.

The Hamblin home is a wonderful and free historical site. Stop by and check out the old home, take a free tour, and learn about St. George in the old days.
