Washington, Indiana is a small rural town of a little over 12,400 people located in the heart of Daviess county. Though the surrounding area is very rural, Washington enjoys many things you expect to find in a much larger city. People love living in Washington because the people here are generally very helpful, kind, and pleasant. Though we have a number of franchises in town that help keep prices low, there are many hometown places to shop and eat that help give Washington a small-town feel. The schools tend to be staffed with teachers who really care about their students and they are normally involved in the community outside the classroom. We are not far from several much larger cities that offer a wide variety of interesting things to see and do.
