“Quaint Log Cabin with Interesting Artifacts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

After the visitor center experience, I was much happier visiting the Jacob Hamlin home on the edge of town. Jacob Hamlin was renowned for his work in the LDS church and his interactions with the Native Americans he encountered. The cabin has been well preserved and each room contains interesting items from the Hamlin family. The guide was very knowledgeable and the parts of his talk about the LDS church was not too heavy handed. We spent maybe an hour at the home. Well worth the 10 minute drive from St. George!

“Great historical activity”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

The tour takes a different flavor depending on the group members on tour and the mood of the guides. I have been a couple of times and I have heard longer and shorter presentations. Hopefully, you will get the longer version. It is interesting to learn about the polygamy issue in the early days of Utah.

“Quick and Interesting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

My family has a home across the street so we've all been in here hundreds of times. The tour is quick and interesting. When the peaches are ripe you're welcome to go out and pick them. They also grow grapes and cotton. It's a fun little stop.
