Rigby, Idaho is the birthplace of television. Be sure to visit the Farnsworth TV Pioneer Museum. It's a museum for Philo Farnsworth, the precocious Idaho farm boy who in 1922 first sketched a primitive television on the blackboard of his Rigby High School chemistry classroom. Some five years later, Farnsworth demonstrated a working TV, forever changing media - and living rooms. It's an achievement that Rigby, Idaho still honors at the Farnsworth TV & Pioneer Museum with displays of the inventor's early patents, his hat and violin, and a Farnsworth-brand TV set. Considering how often you've laughed, cried, cuddled and snoozed in front of Farnsworth's creation, you might want to stop by to pay your respects.
