Maritime Folknet supports Historic Everett and the Everett Maritime Museum in their quest to redevelop the historic Collins Building on the Everett Waterfront into a Farmer’s Market and Maritime Museum. We are especially interested in the possibility of including a small performance space that could be used for maritime concerts, fisher poet gatherings, and other cultural events.

The Collins Building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Historic Everett has been a leader in the battle to prevent the demolition of this historic building.
On June 5th, the Port of Everett will hold a public meeting to discuss the possibility of redeveloping the Collins Building. Public support and input is needed. Please send letters or attend the meeting, or both.
Please send letters to:
Port of Everett Commissioners email addresses:
Troy McClelland: firstname.lastname@example.org
Mark Wolken email@example.com
Michael Hoffman firstname.lastname@example.org
The mailing address is:
Port of Everett, P.O. Box 538, Everett, WA 98206
In addition, please CC both Historic Everett and Everett Maritime Museum.
Update, June 2010
Sadly, the Port of Everett chose to demolish the Collins Building rather than renovate it for a maritime museum. We hope that the Everett Maritime Museum will be successful in finding a space to create a museum.
