History

Waverly was settled by white immigrants as early as 1878, and was named by two settlers for their Iowa hometown in 1879. [5] The following year the community received a post office at the residence of A.D. Thayer on Hangman Creek (now Latah Creek), where it remained for five years.

In 1884 P. Gimble opened the town's first business, a general store, which was followed by a station for a new branch of the Oregon Railroad & Navigation Company, and warehouses built by the Spokane Grain & Milling Company and the Pacific Coast Elevator Company.

In December 1899 a beet sugar factory built by the Washington State Beet Sugar Company opened. [6] It cost $500,000 to build, included a 1,400 acres (570 ha) farm, and could process 350 short tons (320 t) per day. [6] It was considered unprofitable and inferior. [6] Thomas R. Cutler and the Utah Sugar Company advised the factory, based on their success with the Lehi, Utah factory. [6] The factory closed in 1910 and eventually sold to the Gunnison Sugar Company for $100,000. [6] The equipment was installed in Centerfield, Utah in 1917. [6] The beet sugar company employed 150 workers in the factory, and up to 400 workers in the beet fields during harvest time. Additionally, the town included a hardware store, jewelry store, harness shop, meat market, millinery, two hotels, two restaurants, a livery stable, barber shop, furniture store, and two saloons. [7] Waverly was officially incorporated on May 15, 1907.
