Washington County, N.Y. - While much of our nation's land continues to be covered by blacktop and building complexes, Washington County celebrates its farmland and rural homesteads. Visitors and residents drive through our county and see the land where their foods are being produced. Many buildings that have long supported our rural lifestyle stand as monuments to this agricultural heritage. Entrant's original artwork may include early barns, outbuildings, farmhouses, stores, or other structures which have long been used while working the Washington County land. These buildings might be standing as erected by our ancestors, be a family example lost to time or a treasure saved and adapted for a new use.
