Everett Township was formed in 1856 by taking the west half of Big Prairie Township, making a total of seven Townships in Newaygo County.

   There was quite a lot of disagreement in choosing it's name.  The name on the petition presented to the Board was Douglass, but that name was defeated.  Everett Utley also was suggested but defeated.  A compromise was reached, with Everett being selected.  It's first three inspectors were Alden Angevine, Everett Douglass and Empraim Utley.  The first election was held at the schoolhouse in Big Rapids, presided over by the first three inspectors.

   By 1860, Everett Township had taken over most of Brooks Township leaving Brooks Township only a small area between Croton and Fremont Townships.

   Fire Protection for Everett Township is served by the White Cloud Area Fire Board, which includes the Townships of Everett, Lincoln, Wilcox, Sherman and the City of White Cloud.
