Once a thriving community, Beverly was the home to Beverly State Bank, a drug store complete with a marble topped fountain backed by a huge mirror, a harness shop, restaurants, retail establishments, a barber shop, doctor’s office, and a hotel.
Beverly enjoys notoriety as the birthplace and childhood home of Donald K. Ross, the recipient of the first Congressional Medal of Honor awarded in World War II. A portion of Kansas Highway 18, which passes by the north edge of town, was recently renamed t he Donald K. Ross Memorial Highway in his honor.
Beverly’s community center, called the Colorado Township Hall, is located on Main Street and is home to many community events.
Today Beverly is the home to Wilson State Bank, the recently expanded Crop Service Center, specializing in custom application of fertilizer and herbicides, and a recycling center operated by CB Trucking and housed in what was once the Beverly school.
