fun fact

In the 1940s, schoolchildren in Washington collected license plates for scrap, to help in war funding.

This small town went through three name changes before being named after George Washington. A mountainous town bounded by October Mountain and the Appalachian Trail to the west, it was a stop on the stage road from the east into Pittsfield. Rural then and today, what Washington doesn’t have in industry it makes up for in natural beauty. Many residents enjoy a variety of winter spots, including cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, and snowshoeing.
