More In The Middles

Continuing on our way to Clarkston, another little town in the middle of our journey was Dayton, Washington.

Just on the outskirts of town we saw this amazing view. A farmer with an bit of creativity? Or a liking for clean lines between the grain and barley field? Either way, it put a smile on my face.

Cute little store fronts, and some amazing historic buildings...

I think this was the county courthouse? It just seems to command respect doesn't it?

This is the historic train depot. It's so quaint, I could just look at it for ages. It had me really curious so I went and found a bit more into online. The website said,
The Dayton historic depot is the oldest surviving train depot in the state. It was originally built in 1881 and designed in the Stick/Eastlake style. It has been beautifully restored and is now a museum. Revolving exhibits are featured in the upstairs gallery.
Another building I WISH I would have gone inside for! Who'd have thought all the coolest buildings in town give tours?

This was one of the last little houses I saw before leaving town. It just makes a pretty picture doesn't it?
