Washington Square

City of Washington

Founded in 1825, historic Washington is a wonderful place to slow down and enjoy life. Immerse yourself in the unique and charming shopping opportunities on the historic Washington Square and grab a bite to eat at The Blacksmith, a delicious eatery located in a renovated bank from the 1800s.

Visit Five Points Washington, a community center that is never lacking in fun for all ages. In addition to the fitness and aquatic center, Five Points offers banquet and meeting space and theater. The event calendar is always filled with exciting, nationally recognized acts you won’t want to miss live at Five Points.

Washington invites you to come and enjoy the quaint shops, unique dining, and relaxed atmosphere of their historic downtown square. Enjoy ice cream and candy from Holland’s Mercantile, buy a unique gift at Sentimental Journey or grab lunch at Le Bakery on the Square or Faire Coffee.

Make sure to plan for a wine tasting at the new Tres Rojas Winery or make a stop at the popular The Blend coffee shop before trying out your favorite new bike at Russell's Cycling and Fitness store.
