Little Washington, NC 

Founded in 1776, the town of Washington, North Carolina, was the first city in America to be named for General George Washington. Because of this, the city is still occasionally referred to as “original Washington.”

Waterfront parks, a lengthy boardwalk and promenade lined with swings offer plenty of opportunities to enjoy a Pamlico River sunset or afternoon stroll. Washington is known for stately homes and lovely gardens that make up its vast historic district, as well as ornate brickwork featured on the vintage commercial buildings on Main Street.

The historic downtown is the heart of the community. With restaurants, galleries, boutiques and antique shops lining both sides of Main and Market Streets, visitors can wander to their heart’s content. Or, drop a kayak or canoe in at the public boat ramp to plunder the waters that we vitally important to this historic port town and all of North Carolina.
