Washington - Cotton Factory
Early in 1857 Brigham Young called
Samuel Adair and Robert D. Covington as
leaders of two companies of pioneers to
settle here and grow cotton. In 1861 a
Scandinavian company came to assist in
the work. The town was named in honor of
George Washington and was the county
seat from 1859 to 1863. A cotton factory
was built to process the cotton grown
in the Virgin River Valley and the area
became known as "Utah's Dixie"
