Washington County was among the earliest organized in Nebraska, having been established in 1854. After residing in De Soto and Fort Calhoun, the county seat was assigned to Blair in 1869. In 1889 voters passed a bond issue to help finance the construction of a courthouse. Work began the same year, but because of some delays the Romanesque Revival-style courthouse was not finished until 1891.
