Introduction[edit | edit source]

This is a collection of stories about a few of the homesteads and properties south of Reardan, Washington. Most of these places are tied to a common Mahrt or Plaster heritage. Much of the information comes from family lore, old photographs, the genealogy collection left by Leah Mahrt, public records and the Internet. Most of the description of Fred Mahrt place has been adapted from stories and information in the Leah Mahrt collection. She interviewed her father William in 1978 who was a son of Fred.

I hope you enjoy reading these stories.
