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!

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.

Elder Davis was our guide and he was very knowledgeable and fun. Gave the tour a historical spin with good stories that the families enjoyed.

We enjoyed going to the home. The missionaries were very friendly and informative. They answered our questions and the historical facts were very interesting. We enjoyed the visit very much.

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.
