      History

In 1892, Henry Hewitt along with Charles Colby and Colgate Hoyt founded the Everett Land Company for the purpose of building the city of Everett, named after the son of Charles Colby, on some of the land surrendered by its original inhabitants under the 1855 Treaty of Point Elliott.

Everett was officially incorporated on May 4, 1893 the year the Great Northern Railroad came to the town. Everett hoped that James Hill would make the town the terminus of his railroad. However Hill continued the railroad along the shore of Puget Sound to Seattle. Everett was the place where several survivors of the Bellingham riots settled, until they were beaten and forcefully evicted by a mob on November 5, 1907.  Everett also was the site of the Everett Massacre of 1916 which was an armed confrontation between a mob led by local Sheriff Donald McRae and IWW members.  The IWW members were on the steamer Verona and sought to land, but Sheriff McRae denied them his permission.  Shooting broke out and at least five IWW's were killed and two in the Sheriff's mob were killed.

Everett streets are named after each of the three founders.  Colby Avenue and Hoyt Avenue run parallel north and south and are intersected by Hewitt Avenue running east to west.
