Onaway is a city in Latah County, Idaho, United States. The population was 187 at the 2010 census, down from 230 in 2000.[4]

The name sources from the mill works at nearby Potlatch to the west, as workers would frequent the bars after work. When a wife called and asked where her husband was she would be told he was "Onaway" home.[citation needed] Onaway is located between Potlatch and Princeton on State Highway 6.
