The state of Washington is situated along the west coast of the United States, in close proximity to the British Columbia region of Canada. The name of the state has been derived from the surname of legendary politician, George Washington, the first president of the country and a prominent historical figure. The state is known for its great political significance. The White House, the office of the American president, is situated in the city of Washington D.C. The White House has been the venue where these politicians take oath before assuming office. Apart from its rich political history, the state has also been known for being the native of several acclaimed celebrities. Music icon Kurt Cobain, yesteryear singer and songwriter Judy Collins, Comedian Ryan Stiles of ‘Whose Line Is It Anyway?’, actress Anna Faris, actor Chris Kattan and musician Chris Cornell are a few famous faces from Washington. Kurt Cobain died when he was just 27, but his tracks continue to be popular among the youth even after two decades since his death.
