Hike

Herbert is a small ghost town that was operated until the 40s, but with the invention of the automobile, it was much more convenient to live in Rexburg or Rigby than in Herbert. At one point, it's been said that as many as 150 people lived here, mostly farmers or those who worked in the mines. The old house was tragically burned down by vandals in or around 2017.

Went out there for a picture taking excursion. The schoolhouse itself was interesting to see. A lot of writing all over the place, which made some pretty interesting details. It really is just the school house, and maybe two other buildings. The other buildings are within someone else's property so beware.
