BEVERLY HILLS, TX
BEVERLY HILLS, TEXAS. Beverly Hills is an incorporated town on State Highway 6 four miles south of downtown Waco in south central McLennan County. By the early 1940s the community of 237 had voted to incorporate. Afterward, the population of Beverly Hills grew rapidly, from 703 in the early 1950s to 2,670 in the late 1970s; many residents chose to live there and commute to work in Waco. Waco eventually grew to surround Beverly Hills, leaving the community unable to expand its boundaries. The smaller community was dependent on Waco for its water supply and sewage disposal, and although it had its own business district, its economy was closely linked with that of Waco. In 1989 the population of Beverly Hills was estimated at 2,364. In 2000 the population was 2,113.
