Beverly Heights’s population began to grow early in the 20th century, when rich coal seams that lay beneath the soil were discovered and coal mining began.
Beverly was in a great position to grow as a residential suburb, housing workers from the new petro-chemical plants across the river in the County of Strathcona and from other industries building in northeast Edmonton and the town grew quickly until 1961, when Beverly, with a population of 9,000, was amalgamated with the City of Edmonton. The northern portion of the former town contains the neighbourhoods of Beacon Heights and Bergman. The southern portion is known as Beverly Heights.
Most houses in Beverly were built in the decade leading up to amalgamation. Low-rise condominiums located near commercial concentrations and traffic routes, were built between 1960 and 1980. Construction of infill housing has continued in the area since the 1980s. The focus of community activity in Beverly Heights is Floden Park, the site of the Beverly Heights Community league facilities.
Visitors to Beverly Heights are sometimes surprised to find that the neighbourhood’s avenues, with avenue oriented houses which do not line up with those in adjoining Highlands where houses are street oriented. For real estate investors, Beverly Heights is a great place in northeast Edmonton to purchase a home for residual rental income.
