The settlement of Egin, on Henry’s Fork, and another on Poole’s Island, had already been commenced when on March 11, 1882, on the occasion of a visit from Wm. B. Preston of Cache County another town site was selected, and on the suggestion of Wm. B. Preston named Rexburg, in honor of Thomas E. Rick of Logan. As more settlers came in and located at Rexburg, a canal was surveyed and construction and such good progress was made that water was turned into it June 14, 1882. The total population of the Rexburg Precinct was 3,361 in 1930.
