Looking for something old to read?
Sitting around, waiting for 2020 to end? Hey, wait a minute—there’s plenty of months still left in this year to discover some local history. Today’s Hewitt Avenue is fairly tame, when compared to those earlier years of consumption. Read all about it! Historic Everett has brought back our popular 2013 calendar edition with updates and a few new pubs and restaurants to add to your Hewitt Avenue run (as places reopen during the Pandemic).
Some places stand the test of time and this 2020 calendar will be a great edition to your Everett memorabilia collection. Discounted from $20, five dollars is a bargain. You don’t even have to leave your coach to order.
