This home is only seen as part of a tour, so expect a mild "sales pitch" from the Mormon elder who escorts you around. Very well maintained, not too large, some steep stairs, interesting anecdotes about 19th century town, personages, and environment.

Guides show you the home, and tell you things that happened there. There are quite a few artifacts to see, and learn more about Brigham Young and his leading the colonizing of Utah.

An interesting piece of history even if one does not share their views with respect to religion. The history of the building was also interesting and Mitt Romney's father built a portion of it.

Definitely worth a visit! Almost everything in the home is original, including furniture and decor. The home is free and open to the public.

The tour was great and learned a lot about the area. Even though it was hot outside, the building was cool. If you are in a wheelchair or have problems climbing stairs, you won't get to see as much.

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.

The tour guide knew her stuff and was very passionate about Brigham and his accomplishments. It was a great way to learn about the history of St. George and about the Mormon religion.
