Washington County has always been home to individuals of many faiths,
and the community has sites for congregation and worship to facilitate
many spiritual lifestyles. Early settlers built religious structures to
serve as places of worship as well as places for families to meet and
discuss the news of the day and to educate their children.
Facilities are in place to serve a great number of Christian denominations
and several other faiths. Large congregations gather, in particular, for
Catholic, Baptist, Lutheran, Methodist, Episcopalian and non-denominational
Many of the religious communities maintain close ties, cooperating in
community planning and coordinating events to bring together individuals
of different faiths.
