Everist is located a little west of the center of Liberty Township, in section 17, on a spur, of the Wabash Railroad
and not far from Cedar Creek. It is the center of a coal mining district and a number of the inhabitants are employed
in that occupation. No official plat of the village has ever been filed in the recorder's office, but Polk's Gazetteer
for 1914 gives the population as 300. The Everist Mercantile Company operates a large general store, which is the
principal business enterprise. The Shiloh public school, located at Everist, employs five teachers; the town has
telephone connections, a postoffice, and the visitor is impressed with the general air of prosperity.
