Imagine an opportunity to meet someone who lived more than a century ago. Suppose you could ask him or her about what life was like “back then,” before air-conditioning, before our modern forms of transportation … even before indoor plumbing. What would you ask?The educational and entertaining St. George LIVE! is your opportunity to query such early pioneers as Brigham Young, Erastus Snow, Orson Pratt, Jacob Hamblin, Judge John Menzies Macfarlane and other southern Utah settlers.
St. George LIVE! begins at 10 a.m. at the St. George Art Museum, located in the Pioneer Center for the Arts. On the corner of Main Street and 200 North, volunteers and buses are waiting to introduce you to some of this community’s most interesting early citizens. Every Tuesday through Saturday from Memorial Day to Labor Day, you will travel to six sites aboard an air-conditioned bus where historic figures, in authentic costumes, come alive to describe what it was like living in Dixie at the turn of the century.
You will see the Opera House, Tabernacle, Pioneer Courthouse and Brigham Young’s home, all with restrooms and water available. Guests interact with the pioneers, see a replica of the odometer which measured the walk across the Plains, participate in a water stealing trial, hear stories of the settlers and gain a new appreciation for those who came before us. Tickets are $3 per person for those 12 and older. Younger children are free when accompanied by a paying adult; and, parking is available behind the Art Museum off 250 North.
