Development History

Sculpted on the site of a former Christmas-tree farm, the 275-acre community is surrounded by trees of all kinds including spruce, pine and tamarack. Deer and wildfowl roam freely because the natural habitat was left undisturbed. Parks, lakes and playgrounds enhance the community of unspoiled natural beauty.

Developed in 1980 by Dan Dolan, Evergreen’s master plan directed the development of neighborhoods, roads and open spaces, parks and recreation areas.

When Dan Dolan opened Evergreen for development in 1977 he needed to share his “upscale neighborhood” vision and hired young ad-man Jeff Jones to create a series of newspaper ads focusing on the professionals who would occupy Evergreen.
