Beverly City Hall is located at 446 Broad Street, Beverly NJ 08010; phone: 609-387-1881.
Laid out and incorporated as a borough in 1850, Beverly (on the Delaware Riverfront) became a city quickly (1857). This area the Jersey-side of Dunks Ferry (operated by Dunken Williams beginning 1679) which crossed the Delaware to Pennsylvania at a location which is, today, located in Neshaminy State Park in Bensalem Township, Bucks County.
Our visit to Beverly (July 2007, see photos) while brief, was nonetheless one of those rare delights of discovery that make our search for "living places" so worthwhile. If you're enamoured of Victorian-era neighborhoods, check-out Church and Jennings Street. Then head down Cooper street to Memorial Park along the riverfront.
