In 1930 the directors of the Utah-Idaho Sugar Company built a sugar factory at a point about 5 miles northeast of Rexburg, and as the erection of this building and it subsequent activities would naturally bring a number of people to the district, a town site was surveyed and called Sugar City. The railroad company built a railroad station and a number of dwellings were soon erected on the town site. By the close of 1904 there were 35 houses, including two stores, one hotel, an opera house and several rooming houses in the town, also two lumber yards, a meat market and a school house. The total population of the Sugar City Precinct was 1,071 in 1930.
