Jefferson County was named after Thomas Jefferson, the third U.S. President. The county seat and largest city is Rigby. Rigby is most famous for being the "birthplace of television", a title the city can attribute to a high school student named Philo Taylor Farnsworth. Farnsworth drew up his first blue-prints of a television while he was a Jefferson County resident. Later he invented the vacuum tube television display. Original tubes from Farnsworth's early experiments were on display at the Rigby High School for many years. They are now held by the Jefferson County Museum in Rigby. A section of the former Yellowstone highway, passing through the community, has been named in Farnsworth's honor.

Jefferson County Lake Park sits in a rural setting one mile north of Rigby, half way between Idaho Falls and Rexburg off of US Highway 20. The 68 acre park includes a 40 acre lake with sand beaches for swimming and non-motorized boating. The lake is in a beautiful setting surrounded by trees and shrubbery with an island toward the west edge of the lake. The lake is fed by rising ground water in the spring. A paved 1.2 mile pedestrian and bike path around the lake, volleyball nets, and tennis courts are provided. The park is vegetated with cottonwoods and other deciduous trees. The park has picnic and camping areas around the lake. The campground is a great place to stop overnight when headed to Yellowstone; the lake is visible from the highway and easy to get to.

If you are visiting Idaho for the first time it can take years to explore this mountainous state. We recommend three areas you might find interesting:

Bear Lake County which contains Bear Lake, a large scenic lake often called "Caribbean of the Rockies" for its intense turquoise blue water;

Lemhi County family oriented adventures, from fishing, hiking, backpacking, horseback riding, camping, to white water rafting, and kayaking;

Adams County with gateways to the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness and, to the west is the Hell's Canyon National Recreation Area, the deepest river gorge in North America.
