I've been living in Washington for 3 years and have fallen in love with the small-town atmosphere and great weather here in this historical city with lots of cultural monuments from days pass. The school systems in Washington Indiana are pretty good and the instructors are very well-educated and provide my for kids with a quality education. There is little crime in Washington but as with any city there are instances of negative activities here as well, but rarely anything violent.
The best areas in Washington are around the Daviess County Museum where there are lots of quality neighborhoods with very friendly neighbors and lots of shops and small businesses where you can buy things that you need conveniently. Washington is also beginning to expand and grow after the addition of highway 69 that are coming through the city. There are lots of new shops and retail stores that are beginning to move into our area that is providing opportunities for us to live a better quality of life by having more options as to where you purchase items. If you are looking to move to Indiana, I recommend Washington as a small quiet friendly community to live and raise a family.
