A bit boring...I don't know if it was because I had a toddler with me but I doubt it though cause we had visited other homes and she did fine. But here the talking went on forever and the showing was minimal. It seemed you could tour the place in about 5 minutes but they spoke a lot and dragged... More

I was fascinated by the stories of this early pioneer and his efforts to make peace with the Native Americans. I especially loved the story of how he met and proposed to his second wife.

Off the beaten path but well worth an hour or so if you are interested in the history of the area. If there's a better place to get a completely non-commercialized feel for the uniquely Mormon frontier life, I'm not aware of it. No t-shirts or huckleberry candy or old west joke books for sale, etc... Brigham Young's winter home... More

After going to Brigham Young's winter home and hearing a little about Jacob Hamblin, we wanted to learn more. This was a fun trip to make with our kids!

We loved being there and getting the free tour and historical information. Since my hubby is a great grand son of Jacob Hamblin, we knew the rugs and saddle were the real authentic deal as he had played on those rugs as a small boy and rode that saddle. Jacob Hamblin was an incredible man who spent 32 years as... More

This home is a few minutes outside St George but an hour well spent. It was interesting to learn about one of the founding fathers of the area and hear the stories of his life. The home is full of historical artifacts and fun for all ages. The guides were incredibly knowledgeable and entertain.

Thank Deb A
