Beebe

Beebe was incorporated in 1875 as the area was developed in the early 1870's around the railroad. The biggest city in the area had earlier been Stoney point, but in 1872 the Stoney Point Post Office was moved to Beebe railroad station. The town started to grow with the railroad as its center point, which was common for little towns in those days. The town got its name after the surveyor Roswell Beebe.
Later in history Beebe became a crossroad of two US highways, 64 and 67/167. During this time the town of Beebe thrived since it was both a agricultural community and it had good communications. And when highway 67/167 was turned into a interstate it became possible for the residents of Beebe to commute in to Little Rock to work.
Beebe has a history of tornados. In 1999 a tornado killed two people and injured 29 in Beebe. But the tornado led to that the school was rebuilt and got new modern facilities.
Today Beebe has a population of 5,400 people.
