The First of Them All

Of the 28 Washingtons in the United States, the "records very conclusively disclose" that this town, "the first Washington of all," was surveyed and platted by George Washington on the 24th of July (old style), 1749. He was assisted by John Linem and Edward Corder as chainmen. By the General Assembly of Virginia it was officially established as a town in 196 and incorporated in 1894
