Available to buy on…

Originally a lumber company town, Whitney grew to become the main head of stage lines to mining and cattle towns such as Unity, Bridgeport, and Malheur City. Logging railroads were built out of Whitney in all directions. Nibley Lumber Company set up a large sawmill south of town in 1911 as loggers “daylighted” the giant stands of yellow pine nearby. At one time, over 150 people called Whitney their home. When the railway was abandoned in 1947, the town closed down.

Whitney is located on Highway 7 between Austin Junction and Sumpter in eastern Oregon.
