Washington County is a county located in the Commonwealth of Virginia. As of 2010, the population was 54,876.
Washington County is located in Southwest Virginia. Interstate 81 runs through the county's central valley and intersects with Interstate 77 approximately 55 miles northeast of the Town of Abingdon, Washington County's seat of government.
Washington County is part of the Kingsport–Bristol (TN)–Bristol (VA) Metropolitan Statistical Area, which is a component of the Johnson City–Kingsport–Bristol, TN-VA Combined Statistical Area – commonly known as the "Tri-Cities" region.
In 1999, Abingdon, Virginia combined efforts with Bristol, VA/TN, Johnson City, TN, and Kingsport, TN to compete as a combined Tri-Cities area in the All-America City competition. The effort worked and our Tri-Cities region of NE Tennessee and SW Virginia was awarded the title of one of ten All-America Cities.
