Washington Area Code Information

Washington Area Codes




Washington is currently using five area codes. Washington currently has one area code which is assigned to provide numbering relief but is not yet in service.

Washington originally had one area code, 206, when the numbering system was established in 1947. By 1957 Washington experienced sufficient growth in population and telephone use to need an additional area code. To meet this increase in demand area code 206 was split in 1957 to form area code 509. It was thirty-eight years later in 1995 before the demand for new numbers in Washington required a second split of area code 206 to form area code 360. In 1997 two additional area codes 253 and 425 were created.
