Washington County was formed in 1799 from part of Tyrrell County. The county was named for George Washington. Plymouth is the County Seat. During the Civil War, Plymouth was occupied by Union forces during the spring of 1864. There was a naval battle in the Albamarle sound during the successful Confederate attempt to retake the city. This battle included the Ironclad ship CSS Albemarle.

Plymouth is the home of the Roanoke River Lighthouse & Maritime Museum. Washington County has recently received 5 markers as part of the Civil War Trail program marking the Battle of Plymouth, the CSS Albemarle, Cushing’s Torpedo, and Ausbon House. Fort Compher is also marked.

Plymouth hosts a yearly Battle of Plymouth Living History Weekend. The living history weekend is usually held in late April.
