Inscription.  Located just a stone's throw from the Forbes Road (later the Lincoln Highway), the Everett Foundry and Machine Shop was the place to go for machine parts, welded pieces, molds or bells. The business was started in 1854 by Josiah and Jeremiah Baughman. The original wooden building was destroyed by fire in the 1870s, and rebuilt with brick at a cost of $3,500. Since the mid-1970s, the Foundry has been a private residence and art studio.

To view the oldest house in Everett (1738), the Patton House, turn left on West Foundry Street and proceed down the block. The wooden structure sits on the right. In addition to being a private residence, it also served through the years as an inn, law office, tailor shop, and parsonage.
