Swalwell Cottage (1892)
National Register of Historic Places
An 1892 news article cites F. A. Sexton as the designer of a pair of cottages built on Pine Street in Everett for the Swalwell family late in 1892. The Swalwell Cottage is the survivor of the two and the best remaining residential design done by this prominent 1890s Everett architect. A sensitive restoration was done in the 1980s. The house survived a fire in 1992, and the owner restored the destroyed upper floor and roof.
The interior still has its high ceilings and most of the original doors, moldings and hardware. Built during the early “Rockefeller Boom” that started the city of Everett, George and Isabel Swalwell and their seven sons settled in Riverside in 1889.
