Three corners is where Park, Washington and Elm Streets meet on the Everett, Revere, Chelsea line

If you’ve ever driven cross country, then you might have stopped by Tri-State Corner, the tripoint between the U.S. states of Tennessee, Georgia, and Alabama.

The tripoint is located at the base of a mountain about 200 yards (180 m) south of Nickajack Lake, an impoundment of the Tennessee River.

Three Corners in Massachusetts is right here in Everett.

It is exactly at the point where Washington Avenue, Park Avenue and Elm Street converge in North Everett.

If you stand in the center of the road by the red light on the Everett side, you can stand in three cities at the same time with a movement of your foot.

Thousands of travelers yearly visit three corners in Tennessee.

How many, if any travelers, visited Everett’s three corners, is unknown.

Answer: not many. Maybe not even one!
