Description From Owner:
- Pop. 865. In Tosorontio T., Simcoe C., on C. Rds. 5 & 13, 32 km SW of Barrie. The settlement was established in 1868 and a post office called Everett opened in 1869.
- When the Hamilton and North Western Railway came through the area in 1878, the post office and business establishments moved 3 km W to be on the rail line.
- The community is believed to have been named by the first postmaster, Thomas Gordon, after his father's hometown in England.
- It may instead have been named for a farm or home, or distorted in the telling, because no Everett is shown on modern maps of Britain.
