Beverly Massachusetts - A Community That Has It All!

Real Estate Agent with EXIT Seacoast Realty

BeverlyBeverly Massachusetts, located just twenty miles north of Boston and approximately thirty miles south of the New Hampshire border, is an excellent and exciting community in which to buy your home.  Founded in 1626, Beverly Mass is one of the oldest settlements in the state.  It was originally part of Salem, Massachusetts but because of religious differences, it was separated and incorporated as a separate city in 1668.

Beverly today is a great place to buy your home.  There are many churches of various denominations sprinkled throughout Beverly. For you or your children's education, there are public and private high schools, middle schools, elementary schools, and institutions of higher learning.  You have easy access to Endicott College, Montserrat College of Art, Salem State College, North Shore Community College, and Gordon Seminary College.  

Cabot Street, BeverlyA tour of Cabot and Rantoul Streets in Beverly will show you a busy business community with art galleries, specialty shops, many restaurants, retail stores, and historic home tours.  A visit to the Beverly Historical Society is a pleasure not to miss. Beverly has such a long history of how the city was formed and transformed over its 350 years, complete with wonderful pictures and memorabilia.

Another main street in Beverly is Elliott Street (Route 62) where you will find The Cummings Center, former home of the United Shoe Machinery Corporation.  The Cummings Center has helped to revitalize Beverly's business community separate from Beverly's downtown area.  It hosts businesses as varied as computer companies to dental offices, along with many fine eating establishments, and a child care center.  Visit them:

Cummings Center, BeverlyAt one time, the "Shoe" was the primary industry in Beverly.  A large amount of Beverly real estate was constructed during the early 1900's to accommodate the builders who built and then eventually worked in this huge conglomeration of foundaries which included its own water power plant using its own water supply.  Today, it is commonly referred to as the "Shoe Pond". Take a walk around it on the public walkway and enjoy all they have done to beautify this wonderful pond, complete with Beverly homes across the street on McKay Street, and ducks raising their families floating along.

Medical facilities in Beverly are state-of-the art.  Beverly Hospital is associated with the Northeast Health System which includes many Boston hospitals.  Beverly also has a women's health Center focusing on all aspects of women's care.  Nursing homes and assisted care facilities are readily accessible, as well as a sports medicine rehabilitation clinic. 

Beverly Depot to the RightFor the Beverly commuter, there are at least five entrances/exits to Rte. 128 located around the city giving easy access to all of our Beverly homes.  In addition, there are five commuter rail depots, also within and around Beverly homes.  These are located at the main Beverly depot, North Beverly, Montserrat, Prides Crossing, and Beverly Farms.

Thanks for your comment, Kathleen.  Beverly has been my home since 1968.  When I first moved here, the place where the magic show is now was called The Cabot Cinema.  I was a ticket and candy seller.  It's now the Cabot Theater.  They still have first run movies during the week, but the magic show is still going strong every Sunday.  Perhaps I'll do a blog on their history.
