Bergman is one of three modern-day communities that comprised the former Town of Beverly. Along with Beacon Heights and Beverly Heights, Bergman’s roots date back to the town’s former coal mining industry, established in the early 1900s. Though the last mine was closed in the 1950s, Beverly continued to grow as a residential suburb until 1961, when the town (pop. 9,000) amalgamated with the greater City of Edmonton.
Did you know? Bergman was named after Gustave C. Bergman, the first mayor of the Town of Beverly. The town itself took its name from the Town of Beverly in Yorkshire, England.
