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.
