A Little About the Township

Washington Township is a pleasant rural community with a variety of features including open space, rolling hills, farms, housing developments, streams, and a mixture of restaurants, stores and services.   Most residents find our Township to be a quiet and relaxing place to live.  Our community prides itself on its ability to work well together and with others to provide a safe and comfortable life for you and your family. 
Common to rural life, there are some characteristics you will also find.  For example, our Township is supported by a Volunteer Fire Company and a Volunteer Rescue Squad.  Also, the majority of the Township is serviced by private wells and on-lot septic systems.  In addition, it is not uncommon to find large and slow moving vehicles such as tractors on the open road, and the smells and sounds associated with a working farm.  And finally, we have a high volume of wild animals such as bear, deer, coyotes, skunks, and raccoons.
