Welcome to Washington County

Greeting from our County Judge,

John Durrenberger

Greetings from the Washington County Commissioners Court!  Washington County is not only the Birthplace of Texas but one of the friendliest communities in the state and as County Judge I may be a little bias, but I also know that thanks to a friendly and pro-business climate we continue to prosper economically.


As the Texas economy diversifies and attracts new residents, new businesses and new professions – Washington County can be found right in the middle of the economic explosion.  By working together as governmental entities, academic institutions, health care facilities, agriculture industry and with our workforce, you can see new businesses and residents making Washington County their home.  It has been an honor to work along side of our community leaders to ensure we are equipped for the future and are competitive with our surrounding counties in terms of economic growth and workforce.  During my time as County Judge, the opportunity to harness new ideas, recruit talented individuals and plan for the future has been rewarding.  Washington County Commissioners Court has had a seat at the table when it comes to attracting other new businesses and collaboratively working with our community leaders to preserve our quality of life while remaining competitive and visionary.


We welcome you to Washington County, whether you are touring and experiencing our county or looking to make this your home and your businesses home.  Come enjoy our county’s beauty, culture, our citizens and our communities.  As we prepare for a new year with new opportunities and challenges we, the Washington County Commissioners Court welcomes you and thank you for the opportunity to work on your behalf.


As visitors enter Washington County, they are welcomed by monument signage at each of the five entry points to the county.  These signs are maintained by four landscaping companies from the community that have volunteered to oversee their maintenance.  With the help of these partners and the Office of the Washington County Judge, the Chamber coordinates the ongoing maintenance and repair of these iconic signs.
