Southern hospitality is still a way of life in Washington-Wilkes. You'll often see people greeting each other downtown or friends having a chat on a shaded front porch. You will also find a progressive government, modern businesses, cultural and religious opportunities, excellent schools, quality health care, and an abundance of recreational activities.

In wartime and peace, Washington-Wilkes has enjoyed a long and colorful history. Wilkes County, founded in 1777, was named for John Wilkes, an Englishman who supported the colonists' cause in the British House of Commons. The area played its part in revolutionary history at the Battle of Kettle Creek, where Patriot forces were able to push back Loyalists and break the British hold on upper Georgia. After the war, Washington, the county seat, was reportedly the first incorporated town in the nation to be named for General Washington, who later became our first president.
