Fun in Everett

Family in boat, Everett.

NPS Collection

Growing up in the Cuyahoga Valley meant a life spent outdoors, entertaining yourself with what nature had to offer. Everett children enjoyed spending time outside: swimming, fishing, exploring, and collecting wildflowers. On hot days during the summer, Everett neighbors rang a bell to signal all the children to meet and go swimming in the river by the Everett Road Covered Bridge.
