Welcome to the the City of Washington, NC|
The "Original" Washington, est. 1776, is located at the point where the winding, freshwater Tar River empties into the brackish Pamlico River. Bisecting Beaufort County, these waters form one of the largest protected inland bodies of water on the east coast. The peaceful waters, fringed with marshes and populated with an abundance of wildlife and waterfowl, are a magnificent showplace of coastal North Carolina's beauty.
Washington, NC is rich in history. The Albemarle Trail and other historic landmarks will guide and inform the history buff or casual tourist.
Our city of approximately 10,000 residents is located in northeastern North Carolina on the beautiful Pamlico River. We are proud to have been the first city in America to be named for General George Washington, the future first president of the United States.
In its infancy, Washington was a regional shipping center because of its strategic location at the junction of inland and coastal rivers. The shipping heritage is evident in some waterfront commercial buildings from that era. The architecture in the large residential and commercial Historic District captures later phases of Washington's history and development. Main Street in Washington's Historic Downtown is flanked by 19th & early 20th century commercial buildings punctuated with ornate brickwork.
A playground for boaters, sportsmen and nature lovers. Washington has
