Idaho Utopia: The New Plymouth Colony
Season 5 Episode 1 | 26m 46s | Video has closed captioning.
The New Plymouth Colony was created in 1895 by irrigation advocates in Chicago who dreamed of a West full of prosperous, irrigated farms. Instead of 160-acre homesteads, the Idaho “pilgrims” would own small orchards and live in a horseshoe-shaped village that let them farm while living close to church, school and neighbors. New Plymouth remains the only horseshoe-shaped town in the world.
