My curiosities, buildings, real estate and Everett

I noticed a classic older building in downtown Everett the other day. The building doesn’t look bad at all, but it’s completely vacant; not even the storefront spaces are occupied. These are things that capture my attention. I’m pulling a blog post together about this particular property, as it’s pretty interesting. Well, to me, at Read More …
