Washington County, Indiana

Washington County was organized in 1814, two years before Indiana statehood, and is the seventh-largest of Indiana's 92 counties.

Bordered on the north by the Muscatatuck and White Rivers, Washington County boasts lush hills and valleys that abound with natural scenic beauty. The towns are liberally dotted with stately, preserved homes. The architecturally unique courthouse in Salem, seat of county government, was constructed of locally quarried limestone in 1888, and retains many of its antique fixtures and furnishings. Be sure to see its massive clock.
