Port of Everett turns 100 years old

[ June 28, 2018   //   ]

On July 13, 2018, the Port of Everett officially turns 100 years old — celebrating a century of service to the Port District and beyond.
The Port of Everett was formed by a nearly unanimous vote of the citizens on July 13, 1918. Then, like now, the community desired an entity that could reclaim the waterfront from private industry, protect the interests of the residents, create family-wage jobs and serve as a steward of our tremendous natural resource. The Port, 100 years later, it is still focused on delivering on these core values.
“Today, as we celebrate our centennial year, we would like to thank the early residents of the Port District for believing in the value that the Port of Everett would bring to the community so long ago,” Port of Everett Acting CEO Lisa Lefeber said.
Lots of events are planned around the waterfront in celebration of the big occasion.
