I love peeking around in old houses discovering old ways, but this is just an opportunity to sell you on joining the Mormon church, you are preached to from the moment you walk through the door until you finally escape.

We visited this Historic Home after visiting Brigham Young Home. This home is not near downtown St. George. There is easy parking. We did not have to wait long to have missionaries to start the 'tour'. Very interesting historic home.

This historic home built by Jacob Hamblin, a missionary to the Indians has been restored and is a favorite stop for young and old. After a visit here you feel like you really know what pioneer life was like.

This free site offers guided tours, clean restrooms and convenient parking. The tour is about 40 minutes and includes the interior of the home and explanation about the Hamblin family and reason for settling in the area. Family friendly and easy to find.
