Our Mission

  • Preserve the heritage of the City of Everett through advocacy, education and preservation;
  • Engage in the preservation and rehabilitation of historic buildings, landscapes, architectural artifacts and other cultural items that reflect the heritage of Everett;
  • Offer comprehensive preservation programming in order to educate our membership and community.

Historic Everett was formed in 2002, and gained its official non-profit status in 2003.

Since its formation, the organization has garnered immense support from community members, local businesses, the City of Everett, and the State of Washington. Its members volunteer to raise awareness for homes and structures of historical value.

Historic Everett works hand in hand with Everett citizens, forming important, and lasting ties within the community.
