More About The Area

Downtown Washington and the Pamlico Sound

image60

 It was the first city in the nation — even before D.C. — that was named in honor of George Washington. Founded in the year 1776, the old port city of Washington, NC is a place where life moves at a more relaxed pace. One perfectly suited to disconnect from the over-stimulated, hyper caffeinated world and reconnect with friends and family. A place to enjoy simple treasures surrounded by elaborate historic lore - like gorgeous pre-century colonial homes and storied old buildings adorned with ornamental brickwork lining the downtown Harbor District. Nestled on the tranquil banks of the Pamlico River - the heart of the Inner Banks - the areas broad rivers spread out in stunning displays of rapturing beauty, inviting a mastery of river language and living to each visitor. Perhaps Mark Twain's words apply equally here when he said, “The face of the river, in time, became a wonderful book . . . which told its mind to me without reserve, delivering its most cherished secrets as clearly as if it had uttered them with a voice. And it was not a book to be read once and thrown aside, for it had a new story to tell every day.” Heritage can’t be shaken here, where American flags hang on every block and neighbors wave hello to you whether you know them or not. Spend some time in Washington, and you’ll find that its charm hard to shake, too.
