History The Washington Valley Historic District is located on Washington Valley Road.
In Washington Valley, 18th and 19th century farmhouses harmonize with the natural environment to create a landscape that evokes the township’s agricultural past.
A focal point in this picturesque valley is the 1869 Washington Valley School, built on the site of a brick school erected in 1813. Between 30 and 40 children attended classes here until 1913, and some attended Sunday school in the building from 1875 to 1937. For 150 years local residents have used the school as a community meeting place.
