Philo T. Farnsworth Statue
The Utah Legislative Body has decided to remove the Philo T. Farnsworth Statue from the Capital Building in Washington D.C. We are petitioning that the statue be returned to Rigby Idaho to be used as an educational tool and a celebration of our heritage. Philo's invention of the television began with an idea he had while plowing the farm fields in Rigby. He attended and graduated from Rigby High School, and his legacy has had a large impact on our local town. Streets, Schools, and more have been dedicated to him because of his innovative spirit, and drive to change the world. Philo once said, "The difficult we do right away, the impossible takes slightly longer."
With this mantra in mind, its our goal to bring Philo's statue to Rigby where Philo would want it.
If you think that the Philo T. Farnsworth statue should be brought to Rigby, the Birthplace of Television, then add your signature to the petition!
