About WashingtonWashington was established and designated temporary capital of Georgia in 1780. The town has antebellum Greek Revival mansions as well as Colonial-style houses dating from the days following the Revolution; some are occupied by descendants of the original owners. Tree-shaded streets bear such patriotic names as Jefferson and Liberty.
The Battle of Kettle Creek, the decisive battle of the Revolutionary War in Georgia, was fought west of town in 1779. A granite marker at the southwest corner of the courthouse indicates the location of the meeting that dissolved the government of the Confederacy on May 4, 1865.
