I'm not LDS, but I love seeing historic buildings. This one did not disappoint. Our missionary tour guide knew quite a bit about the history of the building from the addition that Young had added to interesting factoids about the furnishings and building design. She also gave us a brief history of the settling of St. George, complete with discussion... More

Vacation tire is just fine and of course if you arrive from late June through mid-September you may count on it being over one hundred five degrees Fahrenheit with the relative humidity around ten percent or less. One of the reasons this was Brigham Young “Winter Home” The tour is well run and is very interesting. Not only will you... More

A nice tour through Young's winter home. A missionary guides the tour and points out the details from faux paint on the fire places, how the Young's treated their servants. Worth the visit.

We were met by a nice missionary woman who really knew the information about the area during the time Brigham lived there. Then an elder took us through the house. He pointed out details that we would have missed, such as the holes (filled in now) in the ceiling around the walls for ventilation. Many of the pieces of furniture... More

Free tour given by Mormon missionaries. It was very well done with lots of information about Brigham Young and his settlement in the southern part of the state. The tour guide was very informative and answered all questions. The house has been preserved very well. For those that can't make it up the stairs due to limitations, there is a... More

If you love history, you'll enjoy this tour. Our guide was (as expected) a kind, entertaining and knowledgeable man. He gave us a great tour of the house, which has an interesting history. Don't worry about pressure to join the LDS church -- there was none, although we did get a sense of the guide's faith. A delightful few hours.

Enjoyed visiting this historical home in St. George. Mormon Church has kept it maintained very well. Inside the home the furniture is either original or period specific. You will learn about Brigham Young and the Mormon history in the area. Tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly.
