Fargher Lake, Washington ...
The small Washington community of Fargher Lake is located in north central Clark County, north of the East Fork Lewis River and south of the Lewis River. Four miles northeast of Fargher Lake is the small community of Amboy. The community and lake of Fargher Lake are located in T5N R2E, Sec.25, and Fargher Pond is located in T5N R2E, Sec.23.

Early Fargher Lake ...
According to "Place Names of Washington" (Hitchman, 1985):

"Fargher Lake:   Village 18 miles north of Vancouver, north-central Clark County. It was named for Fargher Lake, which actually was a swamp on the homesteads of Fred and Horatio Farghuar, who came here from the Isle of Wight in the late 1860s. The change of spelling was due to local usage over the years."

"Fargher Pond:   A 3-acre pond, 1 mile northwest of the town of Fargher Lake, north central Clark County. It should not be confused with the lake by this name, which now is dry, and which furnished the name for this pond."

According to "Names in Clark County" ("The Columbian", 2014):

"Fargher Lake:   There was once a lake here, but it was drained more than 60 years ago. The area was settled by brothers Fred and Horatio Farghuar. The spelling of their name was later changed to Fargher. What was once the lake, became mint fields, is found at the end of the Lewisville Highway."
