Established Dec. 7, 1776 in the throes of the Revolutionary War, Washington County was named for Gen. George Washington. Its county seat, Abingdon, features a 20-block historic district that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and includes the world-famous Barter Theater, Virginia’s state theater.
Washington County boasts a thriving arts and crafts scene and also attracts visitors seeking the scenic recreation afforded by the Virginia Creeper Trail and the Appalachian Trail. The county and its communities are home to approximately 63,000 people. The strong farm-to-table movement here is evident at the Abingdon Farmers Market, which is the largest in the area.
