Yes, you are toured by retired LDS members, and you are touring the winter home of one of the prominent members of the church, but Brigham Young was also the governor of the Utah territory at the same time. So, this home represents the intrinsic connection between the settling of Utah by the Morman settlers - heavier on the historical... More

Learned a lot and it was nice and cool inside. Enjoyed learning about the silkworms too! Master craftsmen work evident throughout the entire bldg. Thought modern use of ventilation for air condition was terrific. Very informative tour guides.

The house is very interesting. The tour is free. The furnishings are of the period but very few were owned by Brigham Young. The piano was brought by rail and then by wagon. It took 3 days to move the piano from the railhead. There was no pressure to learn about the Mormon Church.
