Sherman, Washington

Sherman, Washington, is a little, lowly populated community in Lincoln County, located north of Wilbur, Washington, USA. Sherman, like many small towns in eastern Washington, sprang up in the agricultural boom of the 1880s and 1890s, spawned by the federal government's many homesteading acts. As the price of wheat fell, the average farm size increased, and better vehicles and roads made traveling easier, and Sherman was abandoned. A school (that has since fallen down), a beautiful church, and a cemetery are all that remains.
