Originally part of Salem, Beverly was first settled in 1626 by Roger Conant from the Dorchester Company. By 1635, Conant and a group of passionate residents petitioned Salem for a land grant totaling 1,000 acres. The men and their families built farms and homesteads and Beverly was born. Today, the area’s rich history and stately architecture can be seen in the opulent Queen Anne residences and magnificent oceanfront estates.
