This is the house that Brigham Young stayed in during his summer visits to St. George. Our guide was pleasant and knew a lot about his life. It's a very well preserved home. You can easily do the tour in 1 hour.

A little bit of a drive out of St. George in Santa Clara but worth it. Tours are very good and seeing the place and hearing the stories takes you back as though you were there. Very good history lesson

We loved to see this cabin and all the surroundings. It is well worth visiting even though it is out of town.

We took our 8 year old primary class and they all enjoyed it. The couples that are there to guide the tours are always fun and nice to the kids, and I learn something new each time. Fun part of history.

Coming from St George the house is located on the right side of the road just after a curve so we missed it at first. The house has a nice driveway and a small parking lot for visitors. Once near the house we were kindly greeted by an elder we saw the day before at the visitor center of the... More

This is an excellent look back to living in pioneer times. The tour guides are very interesting. Jacob Hamblin was an interesting person that was revered by the Indians in the area.

This is a very quiet,out of the way place to learn about one of Utah's most interesting historical figures. I found that he was a man of many talents and someone I would like to learn more about.

The tour guides are Mormon missionaries. You can establish with them from the start how much time you want to spend and they will tailor it to your needs. If you have been on the Pioneer Tour, some of these stories are repeats.
