Our Mission

“To preserve the history of Beverly, using it to educate its citizens and build community.”

The Old Towne Beverly Historical Society grew out of a committee that advised Beverly’s history book, Built on Coal by Lawrence Herzog.

The committee found that the community’s history was not only engaging but that it had instilled a sense of pride in the members.

Inspired by the desire to share this pride in community, the group organized to promote Beverly’s history.

Our intention and desired outcome is:

To preserve the history of Beverly, using it to educate its citizens and build a sense of pride in the community.

Preserve the historical documents, artifacts, and significant landmarks of Beverly and in doing so:

  • make historical artifacts available to the public in a permanent form
  • contribute to local, provincial, and national history
