Great tour with some interesting insight to the early settlers of the area. It is amazing what they built in the desert.

We enjoyed the history of this place, especially my wife, who absolutely loves history. This was quite interesting. Plan on 30 minutes as you have to take the tour, but the missionaries do a great job with it. Interesting to learn how St George got it's name, too!

This was far more interesting than we ever expected. It gave us a real sense of the times and histories of those early Utah settlers. The guide was even happy to discuss the Mormon view of evolution and responded to our barrage of questions with equanimity. Also, the area is filled with homes from that period, which you can at...

Brigham Young built this home late in his life. He also built a temple and a tabernacle. The folks that run the tours are missionaries filled with wonderful stories of their history. We have learned a lot about the Mormon religion in three days of wandering around St. George. See this house, the temple, the tabernacle, and the Hamblin House.... More

The house is beautiful and very interesting to see as well as hearing the stories of how the pioneers lived. It's a treat to your eyes and mind. Takes you back to a simpler time.

It's not as old as most places but this place has been kept as If Brigham were still around. The missionary who conduct the tour are fun and engaging for young kids. The small vineyard and crop growing is fun. It's free and fun. It's not too far off the main road an is good piece of American history.

Gave a good look at what life was like for the early settlers in the St George area. Also gave insight into what type of person Brigham Young was. Also located close to good places to eat.

The gentleman that took us through this home was very pleasant and explained the home and history very well as well as some info on the Mormon religion which I did not know alot about. I was glad to have visited. This gentleman made it a much richer experience than it would have been had we just walked through the... More
