Researching Buildings

Whether you've lived in a home for years or you just moved in, the Northwest Room staff can help you learn about the building's history. We can help you track down information such as: names of former occupants; build dates; and whether or not current parts of the building are original.

Northwest Room Resources

The Northwest Room is a great place to start researching Everett properties. We have a collection of maps, city directories, and other materials to help you research the history of a house or property.

Other Building History Resources

City of Everett Permit Services, Snohomish County Assessor, Snohomish County Auditor, and other organizations have information on building history that may aid your research.   Note that early building permits in Snohomish County have not been retained, and blueprints are not on file.
