History

The Everett Land Company acquired a substantial acreage which became available after the signing of the Treaty of Point Elliot. The company's goal was to establish a city. In 1861 Dennis Brigham constructed the first cabin in the area. In 1893 the city was incorporated and the Northern Railroad arrived. Saws mills and the port were stimulating the economy. Steam riverboats utilized during the Yukon Gold Rush were constructed in town.
