The Brigham Young Home in St. George is trully a great local piece of history! Much of St. George's Euro-American roots come from the LDS Mormons that traveled across the country to settle in Utah. With them settling here, they are a lot of our culture and we have a lot of historic landmarks from them, and they left some pretty awesome old houses for us modern folks!

              

One of these homes was the Brigham Young Home. This home was where the 2nd Modern Day Prophet of the LDS church stayed over the winter the last few years of his life to enjoy the warmer weather (than the cold weather in the Salt Lake area) and to help with the construction of the Temple and Tabernacle. This home is still intact and is very pretty to see! Don't just take my word for it; come to St. George and see it for yourself!! https://www.lds.org/locations/brigham-young-winter-home‚Äč
