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.

The guides were wonderful here. I learned a good bit about the history of the building and of Utah's early days. Not too pushy on the religious aspects either, mostly just some side notes and offer of more information at the end if we wanted.

This place is a little difficult to find but once you do it's a really interesting little place. We arrived fairly early in the morning and were fortunate enough to have a private tour and learned some interesting facts. After touring this attraction make the short drive down to the St. George Temple. Only members can go inside, but you... More

Although I dislike much of Mormon history, I can't deny it's part of my heritage. It was fascinating to learn about Brigham Young in his later years, to look at the authentic furniture pieces to the home and learn more about the Brigham Young. Did you know he had 52 wives? I'm so glad for the experience!

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

My husband and I love history and to tour old homes, so this was a delight to go through. It was a nice tour and the gentleman that gave us the tour was very nice and informative. I was particularly impressed with the faux painting of the furniture and the fire place that looked like marble but was pine. The... More
