History and Preservation

Downtown Everett is the heart and soul of Snohomish County. An industrial boomtown born at the end of the 19th century, the setting is ripe with history. Downtown is romantic – dotted with Prohibition-era buildings, vintage street lamps, and corner bars, harkening back to a time when millworkers were central in this town.
