Washington – a state in the northwestern United States, part of the Western region of the United States, the 42nd state in the union. The capital is Olympia, the largest city is Seattle. The population is about 5.9 million people (2000). To avoid confusion with the capital, the name of that city is usually followed by the abbreviation DC (meaning “District of Columbia”), and the word “state” is added to the name of the state.

State Nickname: Evergreen State


According to itypetravel, Washington State borders the Canadian province of British Columbia to the north, Idaho to the east, and Oregon to the south. In the west it is washed by the waters of the Pacific Ocean. The total area is 184,824 km 2 (18th in the USA), of which 172,587 km 2 is land.


Prior to the arrival of Europeans on the west coast, the territory of present-day Washington was inhabited by numerous Indian tribes who lived by fishing and whaling. The first European whose appearance in this territory was recorded in the chronicles was the Spanish captain Bruno de Eceta, who arrived here in 1775 at the head of a squadron of two ships. In 1778, the British captain James Cook sailed at the mouth of the Juan de Fuca Strait, but for the first time the straits that now separate the state of Washington and British Columbia were explored in 1789 by the expedition of Captain Charles Barclay. In the early 1790s, the Spanish captains Manuel Quimper and Francisco Elisa, as well as the British George Vancouver, continued the exploration. In 1792, Captain Robert Gray discovered the mouth of the Columbia River.

In 1819, Spain renounced its claims to the territory of the current state in favor of the United States. Since then, the territory has become the subject of a dispute between the United States and Great Britain. The dispute was resolved in favor of the United States on June 15, 1846, when the Oregon Agreement was concluded.

November 11, 1889 Washington became the 42nd state of the United States.
