(Historic Tours in St. George, Utah)


Historic St. George Live! is a tour of historic venues in St. George, Utah. A minibus takes participants to various
locations where costumed volunteers take the part of early pioneers talking about their times and places.
Restrooms and water are available at each venue.

The purpose of the tour is for guests to interact with the pioneers, to see a replica of the odometer that crossed
the Plains, participate in an irrigation trial, hear the stories of the settlers, and gain a new appreciation for those
who came before us.

Historic St. George LIVE! is planned to entertain family and school reunions, youth and church classes,
women's and business lunch clubs, newcomers, long-time residents, tourists and bus tours. Volunteers include
prominent residents of Washington County, mostly retired, who devote a week each summer to playing the part
of the pioneer, day captain, bus driver, or tour guide.

Tour guides and locations include:
    Jacob Hamblin on the Plaza
    Orson Pratt in the The St. George Opera House
    Erastus Snow in the St. George Tabernacle
    Judge John Menzies Macfarlane in the The Old Pioneer Courthouse
    A pioneer woman at The Daughters of Utah Pioneers (DUP) McQuarrie Memorial Museum
    Brigham Young at the The Brigham Young Winter Home & Office

Tickets can be purchased at the St. George Art Museum. They are $3 per person for ages 12 and older;
children are free when accompanied by an adult. The bus and tour guide are provided.
