Good history lesson on life in Southern Utah.

We received a good history lesson on life in Southern Utah and had many questions answered about that time period.

Enjoyed our visit here. Nicely preserved home with interesting artefacts and history. Worth a stop and tours are free. We are not Mormons and were made to feel welcome.

Our docent was very informative and a very pleasant lady. We are not Mormon and didn’t feel any pressure at all from her. The house and the entire area for that matter is a part of American history as well as of the Mormons. It was a very educating experience. The house is nicely kept up and the grounds are... More

I thought it would be interesting to see this historic home, but it left a bad taste in my mouth. Before entering the home, a Mormon elder lectures you for :15 minutes on a quite whitewashed, sanitized version of the church. It was proselytizing, plain & simple. I nearly walked out it was so blatant. The home itself is moderately... More

We had a very nice tour from the elders. Learned a lot about the area and how it was settled and history for the Mormons.

This home was amazing. It seemed so modern for having been built so long ago. The tour guide was very informative and took her time with us even though we showed up for a tour 10 minutes before they closed. The history of the home and stories about Brigham Young were very interesting and they don't pressure you if you... More

We toured the home on a rainy Saturday, and I'm so glad we did. I learned a lot of things I never knew before, including how St. George got it's name. If you're more interested in the historical aspect of St. George, this is the perfect place to go. I would recommend it for anyone, but it may not be... More

This is the lovely restored winter residence of the LDS prophet; Brigham Young. The tour guides are usually senior missionaries who are volunteering their time to share with the public the fascinating stories of the Prophet who sent the pioneers south to settle the St. George area under great adversity and odds of success. The guides are usually excellent and... More

A really interesting historic pioneer home with a free guided tour and the opportunity to see the small garden laid out as it would have been when the 2nd Prophet of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints was in residence.

Brigham Young, president of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints liked escaping weather elements and had his winter home in St. George. The guided tour of the house is very informative and explains a lot of facts from Young's life as well as puts additional light on historic context from Mormon point of view. For tourists not very...
