Everett Famous for Mud
Much of north Everett was built on landfill and can get terribly muddy. True story told by Everett historian Dave Dilgard... In the late 1890's a gentleman found a hat lying in the middle of Hewitt Avenue went to pick it up and there was a man's head under it. He told the gentleman to get some help as he had sunk in the mud and was sitting on his horse.
Boeing Tour Center
The Boeing 747 pretty much revolutionized commercial air
travel in 1967, because it was capable of carrying nearly
twice as many passengers as previous models. A lot of
people were interested in seeing it and unofficial tours of
the factory soon began. Now, we know we are suckers for the
biggest-tallest-heaviest items of this planet. So we didn't
even try to pass on the opportunity to visit the biggest
building in the world, the 4.3 million square feet where
the 747, 767 and 777 are built.
