The Everett Register of Historic Places (PDF) was established as part of the Historic Resource Ordinance adopted by City Council in 1987. This ordinance also created the Historical Commission and gave them the responsibility of initiating and maintaining the Everett Register.
Placement on the Everett Register encourages preservation of our heritage and honors those who have cared for Everett's old buildings. Any person may nominate a building, structure, site, object or district for placement on the Everett Register; however, placement on the register requires owner approval. Register properties are eligible for a distinguishing plaque, notifying others of the property's significance.
Properties currently on the Everett Register include the restored Monte Cristo Hotel at 1507 Wall, the childhood home of the late Senator Jackson at 3602 Oakes, and the small Caroline Cottage at 2617 Harrison. Although these properties are varied, each one meets the basic criteria.
