Everett is a borough in Bedford County, Pennsylvania, United States. The population was 1,834 at the 2010 census.
Everett's original name was Bloody Run, after a creek which was the site of a battle between settlers and Native Americans. The town was renamed in honor of Massachusetts politician and orator Edward Everett.
Bestselling American novelist Dean Koontz was born in Everett.
Over 200 years ago, the sun pierced through the thick forest on a small Indian village and trading post known as Bloody Run, which was located on a wagon road headed to Fort Dusquesne in south central Pennsylvania.
In 1787, Michael Barndollar purchased the land in this area, and laid out a town which was originally called Waynesburg.
This name was never widely used and this small village was incorporated as a borough in November 1860, to be known as Bloody Run. While this name carries with it many interesting stories and much history, the name was changed in February 1873 to Everett.
The Everett Historic District was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2003.
