when visiting washington a good place to start is the washington tourist office. the tourist office is located on washington square across the street from the courthouse next to the fitzpatrick hotel. here you can get a map of the historic homes and buildings in washington.
historically, the robert toombs house is the most interesting house in washington. robert toombs was a georgia senator prior to the civil war. an avid secessionist, toombs declared on the on U.S. senate floor "defend yourselves, the enemy is at your door !" toombs served as the first secretary of state for the confederacy and later was a general in the army of northern viginia. after the civil war he helped create the georgia constitution in 1877. this beautiful antebellum home is a must see site for those interested in civil war history when in washington. open to the public.
located on the grounds of the courthouse is the wilkes county confederate civil war memorial. this statue is a very common motif in the south.

located in the lafayette manor inn bed & breakfast is the lafayette manor restaurant. the restaurant has a beautiful victorian decor and they serve very good american cuisine. in my opinion the best restaurant in washington. you can also stay at the lafayette manor. room rates start from $ 125.
When you travel from Wrens to Washington, there are speed traps for out of state drivers. The state troopers and local police prey on out of state drivers to give them tickets leaving the locals alone. This in itself is a deterrent. This happens all of the time, I feel something should be done about it. Maybe a blog? You go over the limit by 5 or 6 miles and they ticket you. Then, unfortunately you pay a hefty fine.
