Withrow, Washington: A Farming Ghost
Located in the wheat highlands of eastern Washington, Withrow was at one time likely a thriving agricultural center. Today, however, residents remain, but the businesses have left, and most locals likely head to Mansfield, Waterville, or Wenatchee for what they need.
Withrow is also the site of the Withrow Maoraine, a National Natural Landmark, which was the site of the southernmost extent of the Okanogan Lobe of the Cordilleran Ice Sheet.
Withrow just kind of exemplifies what has happened to a lot of America's farming communities in recent years, and I kind of found solitude in the eeriness of its emptiness. Plus, how many towns do you find nowadays with a dirt main street?
