The tour guide sang a song he had written that told the history of Jacob Hamblin. It was much more interesting and memorable than if he had just told the story. Jacob Hamblin's story shows the perseverance and grit of the early western settlers. There is no charge for visiting.

I guess if you are entrenched in early Mormon history you might find this spot of value. I found it to be a rather dull little location. A traveler to this area might be more impressed with a drive or hike through Snow Canyon which is near the Hamblin Home. I live in St. George and entertain out of state... More

My son-in-law is Mormon as it most of the town. The couple (missionaries) who gave us the tour were very informative. It was very interesting to hear about how Jacob Hamblin came to St. George. There were many struggles and it is amazing to learn how the pioneers persevered.

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
