Hamblin home tells tales of Utah frontier
Deseret News 10Mar00 D6
By Carma Wadley: Deseret News senior writer

This article covers the museum that has grown out of Jacob Hamblin's home near Kanab in Southern Utah. It is called the Hamblin Family Home because Jacob was usually on the road, leaving the home inhabited by his two wives (Rachel &Priscilla) and twelve of his twenty-four children. The home has had various owners since it was built by missionaries in the 1860s, but became Church property in 1974.

It was a utilitarian home, with two "master bedrooms" for the two wives, facilities for home production and storage, and rooms where furniture could be stacked against the walls for social events. The article is mostly about the home, but also tells a little of Jacob Hamblin's history, including a description of his relationship with American Indians, some of whom were harbored in the home to escape slavery amongst the Mexicans and Navajos.
