Church in Everett
Courtesy/Peninsula Library & Historical Society
On Sundays, at the conclusion of a long week of planting, harvesting, and selling crops, Everett community members gathered together at the local church. On this day of rest, residents tended to their spiritual needs and shared fellowship with neighbors. After a fire destroyed the original church in 1908, the community found the resources and energy to re-construct the Everett Church of Christ in the same location on Everett Road (renamed The Church in the Valley in the 1990s). The original church was a simple wood-frame building with curved pews and a belfry. Even after reconstruction and additions, visitors to the church today can still see vestiges of the earlier design.
