Welcome to the Town of Washington

Welcome to the Town's Website. Nestled in the southeastern corner of Vilas County in northern Wisconsin, the Town of Washington was established in 1914. It has about 1,457 residents and is located just outside the City of Eagle River. Part of the Town is located on the world famous Eagle River Chain of Lakes. The Town Hall is at 2301 Town Hall Road, in the home of the historic old Mayo School.
