Brigham Young was 69 years old when he spent his first winter in St. George and he went there to enjoy the mild weather and to nurse rheumatism.
|The front portion of the house was built by Brigham Young and was completed in time for his fourth winter in the area (1873-74). The fireplace mantle is made of metal over wood and painted to resemble marble and above it is a picture of Brigham Young on his 75th birthday in St. George, June 1, 1876.||
||The piano is one of three that were part of the original exodus. When the wagon train got into trouble they had to abandon the piano. They buried it, only to go back later and recover it after the settlement was established.|
||The Dining Room was part of the original house which stood on the property when Brigham Young bought it. The ceilings are lower than in the newer part of the house. The adobe walls are 12 inches thick. In the floor you can see some old square nails which were made by one of the earliest nail machines in the Utah Territory at the Cedar City "Iron Works."|
