These columnar sculptures were created to complement the formal garden designed by ZGF Architects for the entrance of the Everett Station. They represent the three primary phases of industrial development of the City of Everett, dating back to the very early mining, logging and railroad building of the 19th Century (Bronze Pillar), through the "smokestack” period of mills and factories of much of the 20th Century (Iron Pillar), to the aviation and high-tech industries of recent years (Steel Pillar). The sculptures are lit from within at night, and the Bronze and Iron Pillars have extensive text visible on their interior walls.
