Glendale Park Poster

The area we know as Glendale Park was once of the Corbett Farm. At the turn of the century, a landscape artist created a large oil painting of the farm and surrounding houses. Take a good look and you can see where the streets were built. Last year, the painting was restored and rededicated at the 100th Anniversary of the Shute Library. The Friends have created a poster from the painting. Now, you can have your own piece of Everett history. Posters are approximately 12 by 20 inches with a 1 inch white border, suitable for framing. They are $5.00 and are available at any of the Libraries or from the City Clerk's Office at City Hall.

The original painting was donated to the Shute Library by Joseph Evans and Lucinda Corbett Nichols in 1950 in memory of Noman Black Nichols who was killed in action during World War II. The restoration was completed in memory of Elizabeth L. O'Sullivan.
