Overview of Beverly

The beautiful seaside community of Beverly is located along the Massachusetts North Shore.

The David S. Lynch Memorial Park has a long history, like many areas in the city. Spanning 16 acres, the area was originally known as Woodbury’s Point. During the Revolutionary War, Beverly was very important for the patriots, especially after the British closed the Boston Harbor in 1774.

Beverly apartments for rent offer the best of both worlds for individuals that love the great outdoors and city living. Over the past two decades, the population has remained stable, according to statistics from the U.S. Census Bureau. Today, more than 39,700 residents call Beverly home.

Living in Beverly, MA

The region that includes Beverly was given to English settlers by an Indian chief in exchange for protection against their rivals. In 1626, a group of settlers arrived in nearby Salem because of the ideal climate, but after having difficulty finding an area to settle in much of the group thought about giving up. The leader of the pack, Roger Conant, encouraged the group to stay there and in 1630, he and a few others founded the first permanent settlement. This area later became Beverly and was given complete independence from Salem in 1630.

In 1781, the John Cabot House was one of the first Federalist-style mansions that would be built in the area. Over the next century, Beverly went through a long span of economic and industrial development, including the construction of the country’s first cotton manufactory, the opening of the Beverly-Salem Bridge and the incorporation of the Beverly National Bank. By 1894, Beverly officially became a city.
