Washington County HIstory and Genealogy

The first white settlers arrived in what is present day Washington County, Virginia in the 1760's. Abingdon, previously known as Wolf Hills, was selected as the name of the county seat. Washington County was formed from Fincastle County in 1777. The original Washington County, in addition to containing some of the other present day surrounding counties, also contained what is today, Sullivan County, Tennesse.
