Beautiful architecture and detailed wood work. Took the guided tour, but not much to it since you only get to tour the first floor. Second floor is only available for touring during the off season. The home is very well maintained.

Stopped in and joined a tour but thought the heater was making it hard to hear. As it turned out, it was the guide who didn't speak up or enunciate.

Free to enter. They do guided tours, but the building didn’t seem that large, so we felt that a guided tour might be a bit intense, so we declined the offer.

This well preserved pioneer mansion has a 'wonderful feeling' and seems so comfortable. The decor is beautiful and the lovely women guides are relaxed and willing to respond to all questions. If you have an historical interest, this is an excellent example of pioneer craftsmanship.

While visiting LDS Temple Square, stop and see the Beehive house on the corner. A tranquil walk from the Temple will lead you to early LDS history.
