History
Over 200 years ago, the sun pierced through the thick forest on a small Indian village and trading post known as Bloody Run, which was located on a wagon road headed to Fort Dusquesne in south central Pennsylvania.

In 1787, Michael Barndollar purchased the land in this area, and laid out a town which was originally called Waynesburg.

This name was never widely used and this small village was incorporated as a borough in November 1860, to be known as Bloody Run. While this name carries with it many interesting stories and much history, the name was changed in February 1873 to Everett.

As you travel through Everett on the Lincoln Highway (Route 30) you will have the opportunity to view not only much of the history of Everett but enjoy the many unique shops, eateries and the outdoor recreational opportunities. Pause a moment to view such splendid old structures as the Union Hotel, Barndollar United Methodist Church,The Foundry, Everett Railroad Station and Museum, Juniata Woolen Mill, The Hartley House, The Everett Theater, Patton House, Everett Library, the Indian Monument, and nearby covered bridges plus many other designated homes. Many of these sites are easily seen by taking our self-guided walking tour.
