This was a nice prelude to seeing the Mormon Tabernacle. It was within walking distance of our motel in town. We were glad to learn more about the Mormon faith and especially about Brigham Young. Seeing the residence and the grounds was very interesting. The Mormon guide was extremely knowledgeable and welcoming.

It was pretty cool to see this home once owned by Brigham Young. The tour guide was great and had lots of info about the home and the furnishings inside.

I am not mormon but I'm a huge history fan! It was a very educational museum. The home is just lovely, I learned a lot about the mormon faith. Very interesting indeed. Tour lasts about 30 minutes but you get so much out of it. Highly recommended.

A must for History buffs. This house has original furnishings. On a guided tour, you will learn how Brigham Young ended up in St. George, and what he did there.

The tour guide was very informative and we thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent with her. We saw the various trompe l'oeil (trick of the eye) paint techniques employed by early artists to transform plain old pine into expensive east coast woods. These early Mormon pioneers came from the New York area where various hardwoods graced the door frames, stair... More

We loved learning more about the city of St. George and the history of Brigham Young's winter home. The tour took about an hour and our kids, ages 15-5 were all very interested.
