When the rich coal seams underneath the land were identified and coal mining began in 1910, the residential neighborhood now known as Beacon Heights began to emerge. The Village of Beverly was established in 1913, taking its name from the town of Beverly in Yorkshire, England. Beverly was constituted as a municipality in 1914, when the population had reached 1,000. 50th Street was the dividing line between Edmonton and Beverly.

Beverly's fortunes were inextricably linked to the local coal industry, and the town developed and declined in lockstep. The population was 2,000 in 1952, when the final mine closed. The Beverly Bridge, which connects the town's main roadway (118th Avenue) with the main highway to the east, opened a year later (Highway 16). Beverly eventually began to develop as a residential suburb, attracting employees from adjacent industries and petrochemical factories. Beverly, which had a population of 9,000 people at the time, was absorbed into the City of Edmonton in 1961. Beacon Heights and Bergman are located in the northern part of the old town, while Beverly Heights is located in the southern part.

The majority of the residences in Beacon Heights were built in the decade preceding merger and are single- and semi-detached. Built between 1960 and 1980, higher density housing is closer to business areas and transportation corridors. Beverly Jubilee Park and the adjacent Beacon Heights Community League facilities are the center of community activities in Beacon Heights.
