Everest, an incorporated town of Brown county, is situated in Washington township on the Missouri Pacific R. R. 19 miles southeast of Hiawatha, the county seat. A Catholic church was established there in 1868, but the town dates its beginning from the completion of the railroad and the fact that the company decided to establish a station at that point. One of the first important business enterprises in Everest was the elevator erected by the Farmers' Elevator and Mill company in July, 1882. Everest has 2 banks, a money order postoffice with two rural routes, a metal stamping works, graded schools, a weekly newspaper (the Enterprise), telegraph and express offices, telephone connections, a hotel, Catholic and Methodist churches, and a number of well stocked mercantile concerns. The population in 1910 was 436.
