The Weyerhaeuser Building
An icon of the Everett waterfront, the Weyerhaeuser Office Building’s ornate Gothic-style structure was erected in 1923 at the company’s first Everett plant. Architect Carl Gould was commissioned by the Weyerhaeuser Company to design a 6,000 square foot; one-and-a-half story building that would showcase local wood species such as fir, cedar and hemlock.
The Weyerhaeuser Company was Everett’s largest employer for decades, and the structure resided at two of its largest plants. The building was originally located at Weyerhaeuser’s Mill A plant, about one mile from where it sits today. In 1938 after Mill A was converted to a pulp mill, the building was moved to Mill B located on the Snohomish River. It served as office space until that mill closed in 1979.
In 1983, the structure was donated to the Port of Everett and barged back down the river to its current home on the waterfront. The building’s two “voyages” made it a point of public interest and affection.
The Weyerhaeuser Office Building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1986. Today, it serves as a reminder of the once abundant and productive lumber and shingle industry that contributed to the evolution of the vibrant Everett waterfront.
The Port of Everett acquired both mills from Weyerhaeuser when they ceased operations. Mill A is now home to international trade facilities supporting the aerospace industry, and Mill B is slated for an industrial business park.
The historic Weyerhauser Building is just a few short blocks from the Port of Everett’s headquarters. Located close to a number of waterfront resturants.
