The city of Rexburg was founded in the late 1800’s and is located on the Snake River Plain in eastern Idaho. County seat of Madison County, Rexburg is home to an estimated 27,094 residents as of 2014. Whether you live there, or are just visiting, the city and surrounding area teems with history and natural beauty. Some of the city’s best points of interest include Yellowstone Bear World, the Legacy Flight Museum and the Teton Flood Museum.
Five miles south of the city, visitors and residents who love nature can enjoy a drive through Rexburg’s Yellowstone Bear World. Individuals are welcome to drive their own vehicles through the park to see some of the indigenous wildlife in the area such as elk, bison, white-tail and mule deer, moose, black bears, and grizzly bears. For folks who find airplanes more interesting than animals, Rexburg is home to the Legacy Flight Museum at the Rexburg-Madison County Airport.
The Legacy Flight Museum features US military aircraft that were flown by our military veterans. Because the museum is an operational hanger, all of the aircraft they display “are maintained airworthy.” It is not unusual to see these amazing machines still being flown over Rexburg. For individuals who would prefer to learn about Rexburg’s history on the ground, they can visit the Teton Flood Museum.
Opened in 1983, the Teton Flood Museum displays a variety of items from Rexburg’s pioneer days, farming and ranching history, and the catastrophic Teton Dam flood in 1976. This historical venue is made possible by the diligent work of the Upper Snake River Valley Historical Society to preserve the history of the Rexburg area.
