Driving kinda randomly west at this point, about an hour after leaving the mountains I see a sign announcing the upcoming Town of Rigby – Birthplace of TV!
Yup, the town of Rigby, population not very much at all, is where a 14 year old Philo Farnsworth dreamt up the idea of using vacuum tubes to hold a video image.
I couldn’t pass this one by. Stopped in, paid my $2, was curtly informed that the museum “Isn’t just Farnsworth you know!”.
The museum also had a nice, unrelated, collection of barbed wires of the ages!
