10 things you may not know about Whitstran

By Alys Means
Curator, Benton County Historical Museum
 William Bickle staked a claim in Whitstran in 1902 and is considered the first settler.    He was one of 16 children of Bickleton founder Charles Bickle.  Interestingly, Charles Bickle was one of 20 children. 
The community was once called Valley Heights and nicknamed Swede's Settlement.  Whitstran was later named in honor of two retired Northern Pacific Railroad nurses who arrived in the community in 1910:  Miss Laura Whitaker and Miss Mary Strangways.   
Carpenters, painters and costumers, oh my! Volunteers in these areas and others are busy putting the finishing touches on Valley Theater Company's summer play.
Producer Barbara Warriner is leading the "behind-the-scenes" effort to bring "Greater Tuna" to the Princess stage for four performances in August. The play opens on Friday, August 1, with curtain at 7:30 p.m. Additional performances are August 2, 8, and 9, all at 7:30 p.m.
