Washington County History

The first Europeans to claim land in today’s Washington County were the Dutch. However, substantial settlement only occurred toward the end of the French and Indian War (1755-1763), when the British crown awarded land to many soldiers of that conflict, and sold land patents to potential settlers and investors.
