Everett's population has become Washington State's 6th largest city and Snohomish County's largest city and seat of county government, Everett sits on the shores of Port Gardner Bay, gazing at the majestic Olympic Mountain range. Everett was established in 1891 when John D. Rockefeller and other Eastern developers met to plan their "New York City" of the West. Today, many historic buildings line streets which are named for its early developers, Rockefeller, Wetmore, Colby, and Hewitt.
Everett still retains many treasures from its colorful past including the restored Monte Cristo Hotel at the corner of Hoyt and Wall streets. The Monte Cristo provides excellent meeting and conference facilities and is home to the Everett Center for the Arts, but may be best known for the spectacular collection of Pilchuck Glass on permanent display in its beautiful, ornate lobby.
