 Brief History from wikipedia:

 Washington county was one of the first 33 counties organized by the Territorial Legislature, but was not organized until April
 9, 1860. Founded by David E. Ballard; Blanch Campbell; and G. C. Pierce, Washington County contains the cities of Barnes,
 Clifton (part), Vining (part), Hollenberg, Gerardi, Greenleaf, Haddam, Hanover, Lanham, Linn, Morrowville, Palmer,
 Mahaska, Spence and Washington. The county was named for George Washington.

 The Oregon Trail passed through the northwest portion of the county assisting in making the area known to settlers, and
 establishing some businesses in the county. The Pony Express route came through the northwest portion of the county in
 1860-1861, roughly following the Oregon Trail route. Washington County Courthouse and most of Washington was destroyed
 by a tornado on July 4, 1932.
