Some Background on Washington, NC

The western part of North Carolina that borders the Pamlico River is referred to as the "Inner Banks". Washington was established in 1771 by James Bonner, who had a plantation here. He was a colonel in the Revolutionary militia, and named the town Washington in honor of General George W. This area became popular with privateers during a period of colonial blockades.

Washington was heavily involved in fighting during the Civil War, and fell to the Union after New Berne in 1862. Washington remained in Union hands for two years. When the Union Army left, they burned and pillaged much of the town including homes and churches.

There remain many houses and buildings from the early 1800's. The town itself has a certain charm, however, like most small coastal towns, there are many empty storefronts. The docks and waterfront have recently been rebuilt. There is an Estuarium focusing on the Pamilico/Tar River estuary, which is the second-largest estuary in the country. Several shops and restaurants, a farmers market on Saturday and monthly nights of music on the streets to entertain visitors. Everyone we have met has been very friendly and hospitable. We are both glad we took the time to visit this charming little town.
