The murals in Beverly celebrate the community and its past. Included are the pioneer families, merchants, landmarks and activities. Some murals are in place while others will be a part of the centennial legacy.
This begins the stories of Beverly’s pioneers, the families and individuals who came to Beverly for a better life and worked to achieve it. The pioneer section is a work in progress. As new information and photos come to light, stories will be added or expanded. Do you have a family history in Beverly? Is there more or better information than what is published here? Please let us know.
With the war over in 1919, the survivors returned to Beverly determined to build a better community. It is in this state of mind that a group of veterans founded an association based on brotherly love and endeavoured to assist the returned soldiers to adjust themselves to civilian life. Thus was the humble beginning of the Beverly Veterans' Association, which was registered under the Companies Act, April 9, 1920.
THE HUMBERSTONE MINE
The Humberstone Mine was the earliest coal mine of any significance in Beverly. The Humberstones played an important role in the development of the Town of Beverly. The donation of family archives allowed the City of Edmonton Archives to produce this online exhibit with previously unseen materials.
