      city, Middlesex county, eastern Massachusetts, U.S. It is adjacent to the cities of Chelsea, Medford, and Malden and lies across the Mystic River from Boston. Settled in 1630, it was a part of the town of Malden and was known as South Malden until it was separately incorporated in 1870 and renamed for the orator and statesman Edward Everett. A highly diversified industrial suburb, its port facilities can accommodate oceangoing ships. Manufactures include metal items, electronics, chemicals, and printed materials. Petroleum storage, services, and trade also are important. Inc. city, 1892. Pop. (1990) 35,701; (2000) 38,037.

      city, seat (1894) of Snohomish county, northwestern Washington, U.S., on Puget Sound, at the mouth of the Snohomish River, across from Whidbey Island (west), 28 miles (45 km) north of Seattle. Originally inhabited by Snohomish and other Indians, the area was settled in 1862 and the city was laid out in 1890. It became the western terminus of the Northern Pacific Railway (Northern Pacific Railway Company) in 1893. Named for the son of C.L. Colby (an investor in the Everett Land Company), Everett attracted eastern capital and was promoted as a manufacturing centre. Development faltered, but the city exploited local timber and agricultural resources. In 1916 Everett was the scene of a deadly confrontation between armed local citizens and a large group of Industrial Workers of the World (IWW, also called Wobblies).

      Everett also developed as a port, which acquired strategic importance when, in 1994, the U.S. Naval Station Everett became operational; the station employs thousands of sailors and civilians and is the home port for eight warships of the Pacific Fleet. The civilian harbour, Port Gardner, has been developed as a cargo and commercial fishing port. A large Boeing aircraft assembly plant is immediately south. Everett Community College was founded in 1941. Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest is to the east. Inc. 1893. Pop. (1990) 69,961; (2000) 91,488.
