More Description

Washington was founded in 1839 and is the county seat of Washington County. The population grew significantly after the arrival of the first railroad in 1858. Much of its past and present economy is based on agriculture, and the county has some of the richest soil in the world. Through the years, industries have included cigar, pearl-button, and buggy manufacturers, as well as calendar and biofuel producers. Washington has a rich history and many well-preserved historical sites, and it has been listed as "one of the best small towns in America" three times by author Norman Crampton. With approximately 7,200 residents, Washington maintains a historic downtown square and a variety of vintage buildings and homes, many of which are listed in the National Register of Historic Places. In 2008, it was designated a Main Street community.
