Overview

Introduction to Everett, Washington

Everett is situated along the Port Gardner Peninsula in the Puget Sound region in Snohomish County. The city is home to a prominent Boeing Assembly facility, the Naval Station Everett and a large Kimberly-Clark paper mill. The international shipping port is a major factor for the economy.

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.
