Shreds of dreams linger in many of Eastern Washington’s small towns. In the last few decades, a shift in rural economies — more mail order, more consolidation, more Walmarts — undercut Main Street’s mom-and-pop businesses.

Others stand vacant, but have been cleaned and painted with hopes of housing new people, new ideas, new dreams.
