Brigham Young Winter Home

Almost 50,000 people visited the Brigham Young Winter Home in St. George, Utah, last year. Built in 1869, the restored home and its gardens are listed on the National Historic Register.Visitors can take daily tours of the house, which Brigham Young acquired in 1873. It was his winter residence until his death in 1877. More than 20,000 people have already visited the site so far this year.

Elder William J. Critchlow III, director of the St. George Temple Visitors Center and Historic Sites, said people can learn more about Brigham Young by visiting the historic home, which includes many original relics and paintings.

The historic site is located just off Main Street at 67 W. 200 North, about 2 1/2 blocks from the St. George Tabernacle.
