• What is it with Washington?

One thing that I have noticed that really sets Washington apart from many of the surrounding communities are the property values. Even as much of the rest of America suffers from depressed property values, Washington really appears to be rock solid and really hanging in there.

I think the reasons are many, but I think mostly it is because of the people that live here and the pride that many take in this community. With leadership from the community and a very charitable spirit from people that have been blessed in life, Washington is able to capitalize on its many attributes.

Washington was built on the “right” side of the Missouri River. We have major industrial corporations that provide a good quality of life through good wages. We have two outstanding hospitals that can provide for many of the medical needs of the community. Did I mention our schools? Education of our youth is taken seriously in Washington. I would hold up our public and parochial schools to any in the nation. Our crime rate makes us look like Mayberry RFD, more times than not. Also, via highway 100 and 47, residents have great access to interstate 44, St. Louis, Kansas, Chicago and beyond. We are within a stones throw of Spirit Airport (a major regional airport) and of course Lambert St. Louis International Airport.

Anyone reading this post, I can highly recommend this community of 14,000. I love this place and see it as a fine wine that, to date, is a well kept secret. So, for now, Washington, your secret is safe with me.
