Bergman

LIVE IN NORTH EAST EDMONTON

The neighborhood of Bergman was originally part of the town of Beverly, until its amalgamation with Edmonton in 1961. The area is bounded on the south by 122 Avenue, on the north by the Yellowhead Trail, on the west by 50 Street, and on the east by 34 Street.

Bergman was named after Beverly’s first mayor, Gustave C. Bergman, a major landowner in what would later become Beacon Heights and the man responsible for establishing the town’s police force and fire brigade.

Fueled by the coal boom of Beverly, development in Bergman took place from 1910 to the 1950s. Despite the age of Bergman, the neighborhood’s redevelopment in the 1980’s saw almost half of all houses built in that decade. Now, over 80% of dwellings are single detached homes and almost 90% are owner occupied.

The nearby commercial area on 50 Street area offers residents family restaurants like Applebee’s and quaint coffeehouses such as the The Whistling Kettle. Close proximity to Yellowhead making it less than 10 minutes from the Anthony Henday provides easier access for commuters, to the far corners of south and west Edmonton.
