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.
