Here’s a little info about the area. As early as 1585, the first English explorers visited the area that would become Washington. However, it wasn’t until the 1690s that the first settlements appeared. In 1705, Bath, located 15 miles to the east of present-day Washington was founded and became the first town in North Carolina. The region went by a number of names until 1712, when the county was named Beaufort after Henry Somerset, Duke of Beaufort. The settlement that would be called Washington appeared in the 1770s, when James Bonner started a town on his farm, which bordered the Pamlico and Tar Rivers. First called Forks of the Tar, the name was changed in 1776 to Washington in honor of General George Washington, making the Original Washington the first town to be named after our First President.

In 1969, Washington undertook a major renovation project and witnessed the construction of Stewart Parkway, a road and park paralleling the waterfront area. This project included the construction of a 1,500 foot long walkway and bulkhead along the Pamlico River designed for both pedestrian and boat traffic. In 1978, the Washington Historic District was established and placed on the National Register of Historic Places, encompassing more than 600 properties in the central business district and residential areas on both sides. Structures in the Historic District date mainly from the late 1800s and early 1900’s, but include several structures dating from the late 1700s and early 1800s, which were able to survive the two tragic fires. A period of downtown revitalization which began in the early 1990s continues today. New and exciting shops and restaurants continue to operate and open in the historic downtown area, overlooking the Pamlico River. In 2002, the City of Washington completed the Renaissance and Stormwater Management projects, that expanded boater and pedestrian access to Washington’s waterfront, enhanced parking and traffic flow, and created a stronger tie between the waterfront, the Historic District and downtown.
