This county bears the name of Colonel Daviess, who fell in the battle of Tippecanoe. The soil of the county is varied, but rich; and well adapted to the growth of articles usually cultivated in the West. The White river bottoms have a rich, black loam, in some places slightly sandy, which produces magnificent crops of corn and other grain. These bottoms were originally heavily timbered, and along the west fork, are from one to two miles wide; on the east fork, about half that width. The northeastern portion of the county is rolling, and heavily timbered; the northwestern portion is level and interspersed with prairies and skirts of timber; the centre is level barrens; the south and east, rolling, with formerly heavy timber. Formerly, this county presented some magnificent forests of walnut and beach, and other timber.
Washington is the county seat of Daviess county. It is a small town, but full of life and thrift, surrounded by a rich and fertile district, with good railroad facilities; in the near future it cannot fail to grow and prosper.   It has good incorporated schools.   
The district schools of the county are fully up to the average.
