Rigby
In 1884 a group of Utah Mormons
settled and pioneered this locality. They
cleared sagebrush land, dug canals and
erected humble log homes. They built a
log room which was used for church, school
and recreation. Daniel S. Robbins, a veteran,
was made Presiding Elder, and in his home,
located two hundred yards from here,
the town of Rigby was named in honor of
William F. Rigby of the Latter-Day Saints
Stake Presidency. In the year 1886, George A.
Cordon taught the first school.
