Washburn Area Economic Development Association (WAEDA)
Families are turning away from the distractions of a city and are being drawn to the hospitality of our rural community, along with becoming awe-inspired by the beauty of the landscape. The peaceful environment, innovative school system, safe culture, and good career opportunities are further captivating families and they are finding themselves making Washburn their home.
Located on the banks of Missouri River, Washburn is where families can relish in nature's abundance by accessing the river for a canoe or kayak adventure, fishing the vast fresh waters, discovering the locally grown agriculture, or hunting the thousands of acres of prairie. Also, thanks to the abundance of local historic sites, Washburn is truly a great place to learn about the American Frontier.
Also, within a short scenic drive, a challenging 18-hole golf course can be found along with two (2) ND State Parks with camping and cabin accommodations. And if city culture, fine dining, and a post-secondary education is coveted, Washburn's proximity to Bismarck, the state's capital city, allows for these offerings to all still be attained, while living in our rural community.
When you're ready to make the move to where history was made. Washburn welcomes you to where your future begins.
