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

The house is beautiful and very interesting to see as well as hearing the stories of how the pioneers lived. It's a treat to your eyes and mind. Takes you back to a simpler time.

It's not as old as most places but this place has been kept as If Brigham were still around. The missionary who conduct the tour are fun and engaging for young kids. The small vineyard and crop growing is fun. It's free and fun. It's not too far off the main road an is good piece of American history.

Gave a good look at what life was like for the early settlers in the St George area. Also gave insight into what type of person Brigham Young was. Also located close to good places to eat.

The gentleman that took us through this home was very pleasant and explained the home and history very well as well as some info on the Mormon religion which I did not know alot about.

We love history and really enjoyed the old part of St. George. The tour guide was thorough and we learned about the history of the Mormon church coming to the area.

We were able to take the last tour at 4:30 pm and it was utterly amazing. Seeing the home and its history and they tried to keep it's original structure etc makes it very realistic. Even Brigham Young needed to escape the cold from SLC and get to heat.

A pleasant and informative free tour. If you appreciate history or antiques you will likely enjoy. Only had to wait a few minutes for the tour to begin. Easy street parking available.

The closed sign was in the window when I got to Brigham Young's Winter Home, but the last tour of the day was just starting so the guide invited to join them. After a bit of history about the Mormons settling in Utah, we went through the house. It's well lighted, clean and through the antiques and the guide's talk,... More
