It is a legacy left to us by the British who colonized the region a
while back. We left the name in place to avoid adding to the confusion
they had caused, and sent them home some time back in the 1700's.

Now the fact that we have two Washington's is purely our own mess and we have
no one to blame there except our selves.

    not as confused or confusing as the one on the right and much
easier to find on the map. You know, just south of British Columbia!
