Beacon Heights is an established community located in Northeast Edmonton. One of the city’s oldest neighbourhoods, Beacon Heights was established in 1910, when it was a part of the Town of Beverly. By 1961, when the town’s population had reached 9,000 people, Beverly amalgamated with the greater City of Edmonton. The northern portion of the former town encompasses the neighbourhoods of Bergman and Beacon Heights, while Beverly Heights makes up the southern portion.
