Did you know that President Teddy Roosevelt gave a speech at the site of the EverPark Garage in 1903? Do you remember when the Spudnuts Shop served donuts right next to the Old Post Office?
The Everett Public Library’s newest podcast is a walking tour of Everett’s Central Business District. Starting and ending at the main library (2702 Hoyt Ave.), the tour covers 66 historic sites and stories along a 2.5 mile route. The tour is wonderfully narrated by the library’s own David Dilgard, an expert on all things Everett.
Visit the library’s podcast page to download the podcast to your computer, for use on your iPod or mp3 player. You’ll also find a downloadable map to help guide you, as well as a collection of new and historic photos to illustrate the tour for those of you listening in at home.
A CD recording of the walking tour may be checked out from the library. What are you waiting for?
You may have read about the tour in the Everett Herald or the Snohomish County Tribune. Put on your walking shoes and take a stroll through Everett history.
I was wondering if the sign from The Spudnut Shop is still anywhere around or still on the building ? I have a Spudnut shop and I love the old sign. Thank you for your time, please let me know if you have any information on it!
Thanks again, Leah Wyman
Sadly we have no record of that wonderful sign being saved. It’s a shame because it would be great to see it placed on a still-thriving Spudnut Shop.
