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.

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.
