The next stop on our adventure was the little town of Farmer, Washington.
Farmer was located in Douglas County WA from about 1895 to 1961. There is very little information in the historical registers describing this once agricultural community. Farmer consisted of a post office, general store, community hall, and service station. The first Post Master of Farmer was John Morgan. Today the community hall, cemetery and building ruins are all that remain of Farmer. Ghost Towns Of Washington
Like St. Andrews, the website we found this town on had not visited since 2011, and like St. Andrews we could not find the cemetery that it said was supposed to be around. However, unlike St. Andrews we could at least see the remnants of what looked like a town.
There was no road into the abandoned town of Farmer that we could find, so we got as close as we could near some really cool silos. We all had bug bracelets on, Zenna and I had our hair tied up and we were all wearing jeans and tennis shoes, so we trudged our way through the overgrown weeds to go check it out. Upon closer inspection however, we came to the conclusion that some towns are just meant to be left alone. Not only did we hike our way through some very big weeds, once we got close to the buildings the entire field was full of prickly plants. All the green bushy plants you see near the buildings, ALL prickly. Some almost as tall as me (Jenny). So we didn't get as close, or get to explore the buildings as much as we would have liked but it was still a fun expierence and made for an interesting part of our adventure.
