Remembering Rexburg is a podcast created by the Public History class at BYU-Idaho. The students and their teacher, Roger Wiblin, have researched buildings that have disappeared from Rexburg over the years. This first season talks about buildings such as the old Spori Building, Shirley's Drive-In, the original Madison Memorial Hospital, Washington Elementary School, the women's dorms at Ricks College, Food Center, and the Kirkham Building at BYU-Idaho set to be demolished this year.
The class has also created an exhibit in the Special Collections area of the David O. McKay Library at BYU-Idaho. Go to the second floor and you'll find it between the Iron Acorn Press and the Academic Support Center. The open house for the exhibit is Thursday, July 11 from 2 - 4 p.m. The exhibit runs through July 23.
