The History Of Washers
While the origins of washers are far from concrete, there are certain facts that are generally believed to be true. Many Texans think that washers started as a stress reliever for settlers moving to the wild, wild West, or even with Texas oil field workers. In the case of the oil men, they would pass the time by playing with giant steel washers and a hole in the ground. With that start, the stage was set for the washers variations players know today.
Stories on the origins of this game vary, but what does seem consistent between is that people were looking for a way to have fun and used what was available for entertainment purposes. Whatever the true origin, washers has certainly taken root across the nation, continuously growing popularity to this day.
