Welcome to Washington, NC
usually referred to as Little Washington by folks down east!
Washington's rich history adds to the character of the community. The
settlement of Washington was laid out in 1775 on the northern bank of
the Pamlico/Tar River by Colonel James Bonner and named in honor of
General George Washington, his commander-in-chief. The City was
incorporated by an act of the North Carolina General Assembly in 1782.
It became the county seat of Beaufort County in 1785, an honor
previously held by the Town of Bath, North Carolina's oldest town,
located 15 miles east.
