The St. George Temple is the oldest temple of the LDS Church, with construction finished in 1877. Located in the town's historic district, the gleaming white building is set against a red sandstone background.
The Rock Church is adorned in rocks masterfully selected from local quarries. This Depression-era building was completely built from local materials and donated labor. Tours are offered in the summer, or by calling (435) 586-6759.
Brigham Young's Winter Home, 67 West 200 North, (435) 673-2517, was where the church leader escaped the snows of northern Utah. The home is restored with Victorian and early pioneer-style furnishings, some of which are original. Missionary couples conduct tours daily.
Erected in 1877, the white-stucco, St. George Temple was the first temple to be completed in Utah. The grounds and visitor center are open daily, except Christmas.
The Jacob Hamblin Home, US 91, West of Santa Clara, (435) 673-5181, is another pioneer-era building. Jacob Hamblin was a Mormon leader sent to teach the Indians living in southwestern Utah. He traveled frequently, but his home was this impressive house built of ponderosa pine and quarried rock. Hamblin's house often served as a community gathering-place. Missionary couples conduct daily tours.
