Washington is a town located in Western New Hampshire in the Dartmouth/Sunapee region of the state. It is situated in the Southeastern part of Sullivan County and encompasses a total area of 47.6 square miles, 2.2 of which is water. As of the 2010 United States Census, Washington was home to 1,123 people.
The land that comprises Washington was originally granted by Governor Jonathan Belcher in 1735. At the time, it was known as Monadnock Number 8, as it was the eighth in a number of forts designed to protect against Indian attacks. In 1751, the area was granted a second time by Governor Benning Wentworth. Then, it was called “New Conchord.” The charter was later revoked, as the original grantees never settled the area. The area was granted for a third time and renamed Camden. Settlement began in 1768 and, eight years later, the area was incorporated as a town and renamed Washington, in honor of George Washington.
For recreation and entertainment, Washington residents can enjoy the town’s municipal parks, youth organizations, sports leagues, campgrounds, fishing and hunting areas, boating marinas, snowmobile trails, cross country skiing and local waterfront areas. Washington also boasts Pillsbury State Park and an annual Ice Fishing Derby.
