Brigham Young's Winter home

We had the opportunity to tour Brigham Young's winter home that is located in downton St. George in the old historic part of town. It is something we have wanted to do for quite awhile, and we finally got to do it. It was a very awesome and humbling spiritual experience. I learned a lot about Brigham Young's life, early history of the Church, and early history of St. George. My favorite part of the house was Brigham Young's room. His original bed is there with his top hat and cane resting on top. Down next to his bed was his prayer stool. It was an amazing experience to stand there and imagine how many prayers must have been said in that room and the revelation he must have received over the years. It is an experience I will never forget.
