Rexburg, ID

About RexburgIn the late 1870s many miners heading into Montana in search of gold stopped along the west side of the Snake River and claimed land under the Homestead Act of 1862. Many of these first homesteaders were members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In 1883 another influx of settlers drove their sleighs to the banks of the Snake River and established the present town site of Rexburg.

In June 1976 the nearby Teton Dam collapsed, sending 8 billion gallons of flood water into the valley below. To see the site, travel 20 miles northeast on SR 33.

Rexburg plays host to the Idaho International SummerFest in July. The Centennial Carousel, which took 5 years to restore, is in Porter Park. Located at 2nd West 2nd South in downtown Rexburg, the park offers picnic tables; a playground; and recreational facilities for volleyball, tennis and basketball.
