You're Invited - Historical Interpretive Program Ribbon-cutting & Waterfront History Hunt!

The Port of Everett invites you to join in a ribbon-cutting celebration to commemorate the completion of its historical interpretive program at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, May 20 at the Port's Waterfront Center. The ribbon-cutting will be immediately followed by an interactive "history hunt" along the waterfront and a book signing of The Evolution of a Vibrant Everett Waterfront with Larry & Jack O'Donnell.

The interpretive program, which now lines the Port's waterfront trail system, is filled with insight into Everett's rich history of lumber and shingle, commercial fishing and boat building industries on the waterfront. Development of this program was a multi-year effort between the Port of Everett, Historic Everett, Washington Trust for Historic Preservation and the Washington State Historic Preservation Officer.

The interpretive displays are designed for all ages and include interactive installations and historic markers at various locations along the waterfront, as well as a historic website. The displays were fabricated and installed by Tacoma-based sign company YESCO in February 2014.

Come! Explore the Port of Everett's waterfront history and interpretive program!
