From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Whitney is a small unincorporated community in the Cache Valley of Franklin County, Idaho, United States. It is part of the Logan, Utah-Idaho Metropolitan Statistical Area.

The city was named after Orson F. Whitney, an Apostle of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. At the time of the city's formation Whitney was a long time bishop in a Salt Lake City ward.

The community is almost entirely composed of members of the LDS Church. It was the birthplace of Church President Ezra Taft Benson, who is buried in the Whitney cemetery.

The city is agricultural in character. Sugar beets were the main product of the community in the early 20th century.
