Interesting Facts: From 1784 through 1788, the county was part of the State of Franklin, an early attempt to create a fourteenth state prior to Kentucky and Vermont’s admissions into the union. It then became part of the Southwest Territory in 1790, and finally, part of Tennessee after it was admitted to the Union in 1796 as the 16th state.[5] Jonesborough, the county seat of Washington County, is Tennessee’s oldest town. With many buildings restored, it comprises one of the nation’s most authentic historic districts of the period 1790–1870.
