    Can anyone tell me a little more about Point Washington? My family and I have been looking to move to the Seagrove area for some time now, but now we've heard about P.W. Is it a town the size of the 30-A beach towns? Does it have it's own schools, grocery stores, etc.? Is it family oriented or more of an adult place (if that makes sense!)

    Any information will be helpful from the friendly SoWallers!

    Thanks,
    Jana:D

    Sorry, but we are trying to keep Pt Washington on the down-low.;-) It is nothing like the 30A communities, nor does it have a store. I'm sure it is univiting to many people. :D

    Magnolias and hundreds-of-years-old oak trees vs sand dunes.
    Mullet, trout, redfish & sailcats vs. pompano and snapper.

    It's pretty boring back on the bay and the bayou...:D

    Y'all are too funny!

    I'm guessing Point Washington is a great place to live and raise a family. Thanks to everyone who sent me a PM about PW!:D

    Watch out for the neighbors too, many of which are sowallers. They are mean spirited, evil people ;-)

    24 hour mosquito control has produced a strange species of humans there. Point Washington residents spend their free time shopping for long underware to protect their mutated, bug bitten skin.

    Pt. Washington was once the center of our community, a ship came in once a month bringing supplies before grocery stores and means to get there were available. The only post office was located there, and we were once part of Washington County. The Eden mansion was built by the Wesley brothers who owned a lumber mill, and part of the John Wesley family, the founder of the Methodist Church. The Methodist church there is over 100 years old, many stories of happenings in this little part of our history. The elementary school was built in the 30's I believe. Also, the site of a movie, "Frogs", a horror story. I found the movie a Walmart, interesting to see Pt. Washington in the 70's. My dad did the fog with a Mosquito Control truck, minus the malathion, and a school mate's brother was one of the children in the movie. He was later killed in a tragic accident. Many of the original settler's lived there.

    I've forgotten what jdarg's young daughter calls the gardens there. Isn't it "fairy land" or something like that? So cute.

    I ride my bike all over point Washington and have yet to see a kid playing in any yard. I wouldn't call Pt Washington "Kid Friendly". And i had to show "proof of nativeship" when i closed on my property so that might nix you out. Like ye heard before "move on".:floor:

    They are all hiding from the Poison Truck, or glued to the A/C and TV.

    or at daycare, since both parents have to work in order to pay for living in PW, and are hence unable to supervise their child playing outside. :roll:
