Beacon Heights’ History

In 1913, the area was incorporated as the Village of Beverly, soon after coal was discovered in the area. Until well after World War II, the fortunes of Beverly rose and fell with the successes and failures of the local coal industry. When the last mine was closed in 1952, Beverly’s population was 2,000.

One year later, the Beverly Bridge spanning the North Saskatchewan River opened, linking the town’s main street (118 Avenue) with Highway 16, spurring further growth. The town’s population was around 9,000 in 1961 when it was amalgamated into the City of Edmonton. Beacon Heights today sits in the northern portion of old Beverly.
