Preston, Idaho: Stories

Share an experience you’ve had in Preston (fun, crazy, dangerous, etc.).

  • There is nothing to do here except hunt and fish. (Dru, 6 years)
  • The judge is sexist and said he will not take kids from their dads, but if I piss off my ex for any reason he will take my daughter from me, and forced me to give my ex everything he wanted in the divorce or he would take my daughter. I know many women that he has screwed over because he had his kids taken for a while and so he is very sexist. (Lindsey, 20 years)
  • When we put down sod, we didn’t ask for help, but the whole neighborhood showed up anyway. Folks here are solid. (Anonymous, 30+ years)

Preston, Idaho: The Future

How do you think Preston will change over the next 10 years?

  • I think it will be a ghost town. It’s already well on its way, with all the vacancies on Main Street and people raising rent, when you don’t make more than 9$ an hour here. (Dru, 6 years)
  • It won’t. The main people in town with businesses won’t allow new businesses in. So even our grocery store can’t get competition, and jack up the prices to ridiculous amounts. (Lindsey, 20 years)
  • It won’t really. (Debbie, 24 years)
  • Without better incentives for businesses to open here, I’m afraid this industrious little community will deteriorate. (Anonymous, 30+ years)
  • More people. (Angela, 40 years)
  • It will continue to grow and hopefully get more stores like another grocery store or something like Walmart. (Anonymous)
