Moving To Charles Town
The Ultimate Guide
In 1780 Charles Washington, George Washington’s youngest brother, left his home in Fredericksburg, Virginia, and moved to the Charles Town area. He built a home, Happy Retreat which is now used to host cultural events. There’s lots of historic sites in CT especially in the downtown area. Residential areas include subdivisions, river properties, some historic estates, and more rural areas. It's a great place and the closest city in the Panhandle to the DC/Baltimore metro area.
