     In 1856, Everett Township was formed 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 its 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. Its first three inspectors were Alden Angevine, Everett Douglass and Emphraim Utley.
The first election was held at the schoolhouse in Big Prairie, 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.

Everett Township is served for fire protection by the White Cloud Area Fire Board. With protection for the Townships of Everett, Lincoln, Wilcox, Sherman and the City of White Cloud.
