BHLC has been designated by the Beverly Town Council to watch over and advise on the historic resources of the town. The commission is made up of five members designated by the Town Council who have experience and interest in Beverly preservation, but meetings are open to the public and all interested parties are encouraged to attend. Among the tasks and projects of the BHLC include surveying and updating the town's Historic District resources, advising, giving technical assistance, and answering questions both from Town Council and private citizens on preservation matters, educating the public about the town's heritage and preservation issues, as well as interpretation projects such as this web page, interpretive signs, and walking tour brochure.

Beverly Historic District was originally placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978, and the information about the town's historic resources was updated with a complete historic resource survey completed in 1999. The BHLC has been designated as a Certified Local Government by the WV Historic Preservation Office, and as such were awarded the grants which made possible both the resource survey and this interpretation project. Contact address is the same as for Historic Beverly Preservation.
