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

I was particularly impressed with the faux painting of the furniture and the fire place that looked like marble but was pine. The... More

The tour is interesting and the guide was nice. Beware the stairs -- they're very steep and a much taller step than modern steps.

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 tour of the house was short and very informative and the furnishings and other belongings of the early people were fascinating to see. there is no charge for the tour and the LDS missionaries that walk you around are polite and respectful. I love visiting old homes and seeing... More

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.
