Welcome to Our Town

Situated just 30 miles southwest of Pittsburgh, Downtown Washington is the winsome and historic Heart of Washington County. Listed in the National Register of Historic Places, the Downtown streetscape takes you on a visual tour of the evolution of American architecture, with preserved examples of Georgian, Italianate, Queen Anne, Beaux-Arts, Colonial Revival, and Art Deco styles. This retro-urban backdrop provides the foundation for Downtown’s locally-owned shops, services, and growing locavore community.

Whether you’re coming to dine, shop, or play, Downtown Washington has something for everyone.
