Everett Historic District is a rural village located within Cuyahoga Valley National Park. It is registered on the National Register of Historic Places.[2] Everett is unique for being uncompromised by the pressures of suburban development. It represents a typical unincorporated hamlet of the turn of the 20th century rural America.

The historic district comprises the village buildings, dating from the 1880s to the 1930s, along with their outbuildings (a varied collection of outhouses, garages, chicken coops, barns, and a milk house.

The district overlaps part of the Everett Knoll Complex, an archeological district associated with the prehistoric Hopewell culture. This area was also utilized by the Civilian Conservation Corp for a nursery that played a key role in the development of the state and metropolitan parks in the area.
