In 1861, President Brigham Young called 300 Mormon families to settle the Virgin-Santa Clara River area to grow cotton and grapes. Elder George A. Smith, for whom St. George is named, presided over southern Utah. Elder Erastus Snow and Elder Orson Pratt led the company into Dixie.
Dixie was a barren land -- dry, windy, dusty, and suffocating hot during the summer. Conditions were grim. Water was scarce and unpalatable. Sickness and death were common, there was little food and little hope. The Saints needed an escape from their heavy burdens. Entertainment and cultural development provided the answer.
Brigham Young had purposely included people with a wide diversity of talents and ethnic backgrounds -- musicians, writers, actors, artists, teachers, vocalists, poets, and others with an aptitude for the arts -- originating from the eastern and southern U.S., Scandinavia, Great Britain, and Switzerland.
Elder Erastus Snow organized lectures, dances, parties, lyceums, and concerts to prop up the spirits of the people. The first play, "Eaton Boy", was presented in 1862 in a make-shift bower made of posts and brush near where the Tabernacle now stands. Such was the need and appetite for entertainment in this struggling little community.
The first public building built by the settlers was the St. George Hall. It was built in 1862 as a place of recreation, entertainment and education.
St. George Hall was soon joined by the Gardener's Club Hall and the Tabernacle. Various plays and event were staged in these building. The Golden Farmer, The Charcoal Burner, Sweet-hearts and Wives, Black-eyed Susan, Toodles, and the plays of Shakespeare were performed among others.
In 1864, prominent local artists formed the St. George Lyceum and Dramatic Association with the support of Elder Erastus Snow.
In 1875, the Gardener's Club erected a building for the purpose of making and storing sacramental wine for the Church. The spacious upper floor was made available for social gatherings and events. Known as the "Wine Cellar", the building soon became the hub of the community's recreation.
In 1880, a new wing was added to the Wine Cellar, making the upper area almost 2-1/2 times larger. No longer used for storing wine, and now called the Social Hall, the building had a unique mechanical floor that could be inclined toward the stage for theater presentations or made level for dances and parties.
The Social Hall seated 200-400 persons. The original area became the stage and dressing rooms. Backdrops, scenery and a proscenium curtain were acquired from a bankrupt New York theatrical company. A new generation of drama, comedy and operas began. "Play tonight!" was anxiously proclaimed regularly across the valley and beyond.
Locally-produced attractions charged 50-75 cents per ticket -- a high price for the time. Most patrons paid in kind: molasses, vegetables, fruit, flour and other commodities. A pair of shoes, and item very hard to come by, would provide tickets for an entire family.
Literally dozens of plays and musicals were produced and repeated over the next several decades: The Stranger, The British Slave, Look Before You Leap, The Gun Maker of Moscow, Kathleen Mavourneen, The Rose of Etterick Vale, Pissaro, Summer and the Frost King, Damon and Pythias, and many more.
One memorable play was Jennie Brown or Relief of the Lucknow with Martha Snow, Frank Snow, John Woodbury, Josephine Snow, Joseph Bently, and Horatio Pickett. In the emotional final scene, the heroine is mistreated and denied her children by the villain. A tipsy miner in the audience became enraged, jumped to his feet and vowed to kill the scoundrel with his pistol. Friends interfered but the gun went off and put a bullet hole in the ceiling.
During the early 1900's to the mid-1920's, the Social Hall was called the "Opera House" because of the many operettas and vaudeville shows that were presented during host years. Most notable of these were Pinafore and Robin Hood.
The Social Hall/ Opera House functioned for 50 years as the center of Southern Utah's cultural activities. A generation of pioneers cast their heavy loads aside and laughed, cried smiled and cheered.
In the 1930's the Social Hall/Opera House was sold and used as a sugar beet seed cleaning plant for m...

Located at the top of Main Street, Brooks Nature Park with its serene Cox Pond is a neighborhood park whose architecture and focal point are provided by nature. This historic location was the original water source for the settlers of the valley and offers natural wonders found nowhere else in Utah.

Water percolating from the surrounding red cliffs creates emergent natural springs which fill the pond and supply the water for the historic Waterwalk down Main Street. The park is easily enjoyed by walking the gravel path under the shade of a variety of trees. At the top of the park the trail reaches a small amphitheater and more adventurous hikers can continue up the canyon int...

...y other state and federal agencies have restricted the use of fireworks in all unincorporated areas of the state. Due to the extreme fire danger that exists in the southwestern region of Utah, the St. George Fire Chief signed an order prohibiting fireworks in designated areas of the City. No fireworks of any kind are to be used within 200 feet of the following areas:
Dry washes and drainages
River and stream corridors
Hillsides, plateaus and mesa tops
Undeveloped open space or natural terrain
Use of fireworks is completely prohibited in the development north of Snow Canyon Parkway on State Road 18, including The Ledges development.
Prohibited activities include:
No discharge of fireworks within the areas listed
No firecrackers, cherry bombs, roman candles, bottle rockets, single or reloadable mortars, or other Class "C" fireworks not State of Utah approved.
Recreational fires, unless the location is approved by the fire department (click here for recreational burning regulations)
Welding, cutting, or grinding within the areas listed, unless approved by the fire department.
No sky lanterns.
Fireworks restrictions are in effect, and it is important that you understand which locations throughout the city are restricted and considered dangerous for personal fireworks use. We hope that you find this webpage useful in identifying these areas. Local fireworks retailers will also have maps available for you to view. Your help in keeping our community safe this holiday season is very much appreciated.
Safety TipsThe lighting of fireworks on holidays have become a tradition with many families. If families act responsibly with legal fireworks activities, they should have an enjoyable holiday. The vast majority of legal displays occur without incident. The majority of fire incidents that occur are a result of illegal or improper fireworks discharges. Be smart, safe, and responsible.
Use only fireworks purchased in the State of Utah from licensed dealers or retailers. If you purchased the fireworks out of state, they may not be legal in this state. You will be cited if found to be in possession of illegal fireworks, and will be responsible to pay for damages and extinguishing costs as a result of any fires that you cause.
Use fireworks only with responsible adult supervision at all times.
Never allow young children to handle fireworks.
Light the fireworks in an open area and on a non-combustible surface, such as a driveway or paved area.
If windy conditions exist, do not light fireworks.
Keep a bucket of water available.
Handle used and "dud" fireworks with a shovel.
Soak fireworks thoroughly in a bucket of water, or douse them with a hose prior to disposal.
Keep clear while lighting fireworks, and do not lean over them at any time.
Do not relight “dud” fireworks.
Watch out for your pets and animals. It is preferable to keep them indoors and away from the displays.
Check for any restrictions that may apply to your area.
Fireworks are an American tradition. Safety and common sense are important as we celebrate the holidays with fireworks. Fireworks can provide hours of wholesome family entertainment, but must be used carefully and safely. If you have additional questions about fireworks use or would like information on obtaining a pyrotechnics display permit, please contact the St. George Fire Department at 435-627-4150.
To report the discharge of fireworks in restricted areas please call the non-emergency dispatch number at 435-627-4300. For emergencies, call 911.
