Washington County was formed by European Americans in 1776 from Fincastle County. It was named for George Washington, who was then commander-in-chief of the Continental Army. As with many other frontier counties, the boundaries and territory changed over the years. In 1786 the northwestern part of Washington County became Russell County. In 1814 the western part of what remained of Washington County was
combined with parts of
Lee and Russell counties to form Scott County. In 1832 the northeastern part of Washington was combined
with part of
Wythe County to form Smyth County.     source: Wikipedia
