Named after the first president of the United States, Washington County is nationally known as the place where Abraham Lincoln's parents wed in 1806. While that is the public perception, residents say they live in the county to enjoy life's simple pleasures--visiting friends, watching softball games, or taking drives in the country. It is a unique and beautiful place; rugged, wooded hills in the north gently cascade to rolling, fertile terrain in the south. Washington County was made up of 35 separate communities, now anchored by the incorporated towns of Springfield, the county seat; Willisburg; and Mackville. Images of America: Washington County features photographs of the area's rich culture, the strong roles of religion and education, the agrarian base, and, most importantly, its families. The photographs depict the enjoyment of living and prospering in Washington County.
