About Our Community

Known as the “Kaolin Capital of the World“, Washington County is centrally located halfway between Atlanta and Savannah and Macon and Augusta. Washington County is a strong community finding its strentghs in history, industry and family. We offer a diverse economic base to include agriculture, manufacturing, mining, timber, transportation, education and healthcare. Our public school systems provide excellence in academics and sports with both schools earning state titles in various programs. Home to many historial sites such as The Brown Museum, where General William T Sherman spent the night during his march to sea, the oldest jail in Georgia as well as homes built during the late 19th century and early 20th century, Washington County is not only a great place to visit but also a great place to live.
