Comments:

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.

Current Status:

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. The Sherman Community comes together every year on Memorial Day for a Celebration at the Church. Farm families in the area and those pioneer families whose roots included the Sherman Community in earlier years gather to Honor those that have served and remember their families history as part of Sherman.
