It adopted the commission form of government in 1913.In the 1870s, Beaver Falls was home to a Chinatown and had as many as 200 Chinese residents.Travellers would often stop in Beaver Falls while transversing Western Pennsylvania, since there were many modes of transportation through the area (railroad, highway, canal). The city was also linked to Ellwood City in 1914 by the Pittsburgh, Harmony, Butler and New Castle Railway, an interurban trolley line. The line closed on 15 June 1931.The city is best known in fiction as the setting of the television situation comedy Mr. Belvedere.On May 31, 1985, an F3 tornado hit just north of the city as it went across northern portions of Beaver County, as part of the 1985 United States-Canadian tornado outbreak.

The world's first recorded college basketball game occurred in the city on April 8, 1893 when the intramural team from Geneva College defeated the New Brighton YMCA.
