Washington County, NY



Washington County was separated from Albany County in 1772.  At that time, it was called Charlotte County, but it was renamed Washington County in 1784.  Parts of Washington were transferred to Vermont in 1790.  You may also want to consult our Albany County page and our page about Vermont for locations that may have been affected by these transactions.

Other counties were subsequently removed from Washington County in whole or in part.  Please see our separate pages for the following counties:  Clinton County and Warren County.
