Attraction details
Owner description: The Heritage House was built in 1894 for Henry and Mary Bowman, but went on to serve as home to other locally prominent families. As you step through the doors, it is as though you have stepped back in time. The home is furnished with many original furniture pieces. You will learn about the history of Kanab and the people that helped make it what it is today. Private tours are available by request during normal closed hours. The Heritage House may occasionally be closed to host a private event. Please visit our website for a list of future closings.
Useful Information: Bathroom facilities

This was a great tour and actually one of the hi lights of my trip to Southern Utah. It's great to see a house so well kept up and somebody so knowledgeable conducting the tour. I even learned how to make a hollyhock doll!

Stopped in while passing through on vacation. WHAT AN EXCELLENT EXAMPLE OF A LATE 1800's home. Emily, our tour guide was extremely interesting and knowledgeable. They do not charge for the tour but a tip jar is on a table so be kind and leave a tip worthy of the great tour you just received...

Our tour guide very kindly gave us a free walk-through of the house, even though she was closing up shop when we showed up! The information she provided was fantastic. She was incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about the history of Kanab, the house, and the families who lived there. The house itself is a gem, and the kitchen, as well as many of the furnishings inside are original to the house, which makes it a real gem. I was surprised at how wonderfully kept up this museum is, and would highly recommend for anyone staying in or passing through Kanab.

My wife and I visited the heritage house and we had a great time. It was very well presented and Emily the tour guide was not only knowledgeable but she obviously also enjoyed what she was doing. Sometimes these types of things are hit or miss and this one is definitely a hit. The tour takes between 20 - 30 minutes and it's well worth stopping to do it. The tour is completely free so take the time to learn some neat history from the neat town of Kanab.

This was an interesting place from the outside. We never went in and down the back there was a very photogenic old shed.
