The First of Them All

One of more than thirty Washingtons in the United States, only this town, "The First Washington of All," was surveyed and platted by George Washington on the 24th day of July (old style) 1749. He was assisted by John Lonem and Edward Corder as chainmen. The General Assembly of Virginia officially established it as a town in 1796 and incorporated it in 1894. Washington has served as the county seat of Rappahannock County since 1833.
