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.

Worth the 45 minute tour but you could spend longer if you have time. The tour guides were not totally knowledgeable but had a lot of information.

We enjoyed the tour of this historic home. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and pleasant. I enjoyed seeing all of the antique kitchen tools. The woodwork and finishes were very well done. All of the wood was pine, but was finished to look like other wood. We spent about an hour there.

loved the stories the missionaries told concerning the Prophet and the sacrifice the Saints made in building and living here among the red rocks of St. George, you shouldn't miss this home site when you visit St. George.

Interesting tour by a volunteer, would have liked more information on Young himself. House is only small but it gave a good feel of what life was like at the time .

Fun to learn why the area was settled, why it's called Dixie, and why it's called St. George. Beautiful antiques, interesting back ground. Really enjoyed the tour.

Free tours are given pretty much daily. The house is small and pretty much original. The tour guide we had gave us a lot of good information and was friendly. It was cool to see what St George looked like before it became a bigger town, and to hear about the first settlers that came in and why. Lasted about... More

The tour guide on this free tour was very informative and provided great insight into the early days of the Mormons (Later Day Saints - LDS).
