Historic Resource Survey Update

A city-wide historic resource survey was recently completed, made possible through a matching grant funded by the Massachusetts Historical Commission and the City of Beverly’s Community Preservation Act. The surveys cover approximately 125 properties, including municipally owned buildings, landscapes, churches, parks, and several neighborhoods. These documents expand our understanding of the history of Beverly and help us preserve and enhance the quality of our neighborhoods and commercial areas.

Please click here to access the surveys.  Hard copies will be made available soon.
