The Historical Interpretive Program honors the rich heritage of the lumber and shingle, commercial fishing and boat building industries that operated on the waterfront between 10th and 18th streets along West Marine View Drive.
The interpretive program was made possible by a partnership with the Port of Everett, Historic Everett, Washington Trust for Historic Preservation and the Washington State Department of Archeology and Historic Preservation.
The story told by our interpretive program was derived from the research and writings of Jack and Larry O’Donnell, two brothers who are local historians and experts on Everett’s history. Larry himself once worked in the lumber mills of the north waterfront. Excerpts of their book, The Evolution of a Vibrant Everett Waterfront, is the basis of historical content and approach to telling this place based history.
The Evolution of a Vibrant Everett Waterfront is available for purchase at the Port of Everett Administration Office, located at 1205 Craftsman Way, Suite 200, Everett, WA 98201. Call 425.259.3164 for pricing information.
