North Central Washington Ghost Signs:  Monitor

A short pull off from Highway 2 just west of Wenatchee made for a quick look for some more Ghost Signs.  And it paid off, too.  Monitor, Washington is home to several fruit warehouse buildings, some farms, orchards, and homes, and even a small business or two.

Sometimes what you find can be something like a small directional sign like this one pointing to the shipping office.  While other times what you find is a huge faded business name.

Most ghost signs aren’t as colorful or as detailed as this Collins Fruit sign.  This is a real treasure. 

Monitor is a tiny community, but it still had a couple entries in the catalog of North Central Washington Ghost Signs
