One of the amazing towns we have the honor of working in is Washington.

A few fun facts about Washington (courtesy of Wikipedia):

Before the arrival of European settlers, the lands today comprising Washington were inhabited by the Wyantenock tribe.

The town was named after George Washington, who traveled through the area several times during the American Revolution, and proverbially slept in New Preston in 1781.

In 1861, Frederick W. Gunn, the abolitionist founder of the Gunnery prep school, opened America's first summer camp in Washington.

A substantial percentage of the houses in Washington were built prior to 1950, and many of the structures built since then have faithfully followed the town's rural New England vernacular, resulting in an unusual degree of architectural cohesion.
