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. There is so much interesting information out there on how the area was settled and what it took to just put food on the table back then.... More

Mormon polygamist involved with the Mountain Meadows Massacre that took place nearby. I suppose if you are an LDS adherent it would be of interest but his practice of polygamy and participant in murder of innocent women, children and men pioneers passing through taints his reputation.

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

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.
