The donor is the great-grandson of William Everett, co-founder with Aughenbaugh, of the EACO Mill in Waseca County. The Everett home, built by William's son Edward Everett, overlooking the east end of Clear Lake, was a showplace in its time, a classic Victorian-style home, it was demolished in 1958 it was an architectural and historical loss to Waseca County. This collection of photographs from Willard Everett is donated under our "Loaned to Us"" program, where the donor allows WCHS to scan the images, but donor keeps possession of the original photographs. This photo is from one of the Everett family albums, one entirely devoted to documenting the childhood of William Rinehart Everett, son of E. A. and Nettie Everett, and the donor's father. William R. Everett was born in Waseca, Minn., on May 13, 1891.
