Everett, Massachusetts

Everett is a city in Middlesex County, just north of Boston. Incorporated in 1870 as a town, and again in 1892 as a city, Everett has a landmass of slightly less than 3.5 square miles and a population of just over 38,000 people. Everett is governed by a mayor and a city council consisting of a Board of Alderman and a Common Council, making it the only city in the country with a bicameral legislature.

Early 19th-century Everett was primarily an agricultural community. Farms and fruit orchards provided produce for local use and sale in Boston and neighboring communities. Timber, brick, and rope for construction were all made locally. By 1870, the Eastern and Grand Junction Railroad served as a vital link for commerce and transportation. Though small, Everett's substantial water access along the Island End and Mystic Rivers proved attractive to heavy industry. Chemical plants, oil refineries and power plants occupied much of the city's riverfront areas. Companies such New England Coke Works, Colonial Beacon Oil Company, and the James A. Cochrane Chemical Company established a foundation for later companies such as Humble Oil and Refining Company and Monsanto Chemical Company. Ancillary companies such as the Dampney Company, founded in 1917 to produce specialty anti-corrosion coatings for boilers and turbines, also sprang up. The early decades of the 20th century saw some stagnation of industry, due to labor disputes and economic depression. However, the approach of World War II saw a return to productivity. In 1939, General Electric established a plant in Everett, and by 1943 was operating on a 24-hour basis in aid of the war effort. The H.K. Porter Company opened its plant in 1942. In 1943, the first unit of Boston Edison Company's Mystic Station power generation plant came online. Much of the economic growth of this period lasted well into the second half of the 20th century.

Asbestos exposure has been a problem in Everett over the years, due to the city's high population-density and tradition of heavy industry. If you or a loved one have been exposed to asbestos, you may be at risk for asbestos lung cancer or other illnesses. Mesothelioma clinics in and around Everett are listed at the bottom of this page.
