June 2008 – Port hired Larry and Jack O’Donnell to compile comprehensive history of Everett’s industries for use in interpretive program
The Port of Everett’s North Marina Area will be ‘sailing through time’ in a matter of months with the implementation of an interpretive program in tribute to Everett’s rich waterfront history. This $400,000 program will honor the lumber and shingle, commercial fishing and boat building industries that have made Everett the city it is today.
Local historians Larry and Jack O’Donnell were hired by the Port last year to assemble a comprehensive history of the industries. This in-depth information will provide the platform needed to create the interpretive displays and allow the interpretive program to tell Everett’s industrial story.
All phases of the interpretive program will be implemented by July 2014.
