Santa Clara history:

A part of the overall plan for the colonization of Southern Utah was the wine mission. Some 20 families of Swiss converts to the LDS Church, newly arrived from their native land, were called to settle at Santa Clara, five miles west of St. George. They arrived at their destination on November 28, 1861. The first months for these people would have meant starvation had it not been for their inate nature. So industrious and thrifty were they that in 1873, just 12 years later, the Deseret News reported: "The Santa Clara settlement, consisting of 20 families sent there by the Perpetual Emigration Fund without a dollar, have houses, land, vineyards, horses, wagons, and cattle and are sending over one hundred children to school. They have no poor in Santa Clara." At Santa Clara you'll find the house built by Jacob Hamblin, a Mormon scout and peacemaker among the Indians. The rough hewn structure dates back to 1862.
