About Everett: Videocases

Everett was settled in 1630, established as a town in 1870 and incorporated as a city in 1892. A blue-collar working class community, Everett has served as a gateway city to immigrants for most of its history. One third of Everett’s land is devoted to industrial use, leaving only two square miles in which to reside. This makes for a close social community that strives to provide high levels of education, public safety, public works and recreational services to its residents.
