Overview of Fort Washington

Located south of Arlington, Virginia, and Washington, D.C., the small community of Fort Washington is one of the most well respected suburbs in the Tri-State Area. The town gets its name from the historical U.S. Army fort that was built to protect American troops from the British during the War of 1812. The city is steeped in a rich heritage and so close to everything the D.C. area has to offer, so it is no surprise that Fort Washington apartments for rent are such a sought after commodity. With a 2010 population of nearly 24,000 according to the U.S. Census Bureau, this small community is a fantastic small-town refuge from the jostle of the city.
