Everett, WA

Everett, Washington, is a waterfront city located 25 miles north of Seattle on Port Gardner Bay. It is the county seat of Snohomish County, and is known nationally for its Boeing manufacturing facility.

Everett's roots date to 1890, when a group of wealthy investors cleared land with the aim of forming an industrial boomtown. The early economy included a barge works, nail factory, paper mill, and smelter. Lumber and shingle-making were also important industries.

Between 1900 and 1910, Everett's population tripled to approximately 24,000 people, as immigrants from Canada, Germany, and Scandinavia arrived looking for jobs. Eventually, lumbering gave way to papermaking, which gave way to aerospace with the arrival of Boeing in the 1960s. Everett's past is still visible in many historic homes and buildings in the central business district.

Everett has shed its mill-town past and now has a substantial labor force, working primarily in the aerospace, technology, and service industries. Boeing's massive manufacturing complex on the south end of the city is home to several of the company's commercial jetliner programs.

In recent years, the Port has estimated that its maritime activity generates close to $100 million in annual revenue for local businesses.

The Port also owns Jetty Island, a man-made island with beaches that are popular with Everett residents.
