Great history

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.

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 .

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).

Great tour with some interesting insight to the early settlers of the area. It is amazing what they built in the desert.

We enjoyed the history of this place, especially my wife, who absolutely loves history. This was quite interesting. Plan on 30 minutes as you have to take the tour, but the missionaries do a great job with it. Interesting to learn how St George got it's name, too!

This was far more interesting than we ever expected. It gave us a real sense of the times and histories of those early Utah settlers. The guide was even happy to discuss the Mormon view of evolution and responded to our barrage of questions with equanimity. Also, the area is filled with homes from that period, which you can at...

Brigham Young built this home late in his life. He also built a temple and a tabernacle. The folks that run the tours are missionaries filled with wonderful stories of their history. We have learned a lot about the Mormon religion in three days of wandering around St. George. See this house, the temple, the tabernacle, and the Hamblin House.... More
