Beebe AR, White County, old pictures reviewed. Historic Beebe.

Beebe Arkansas is getting a Wal-Mart supercenter.  It is under construction right now.

So perhaps we need to review Beebe.  This picture was just on ebay and sold for $43.56 and I hope someone from Beebe bought it and will treasure it.  It is over 100 years old.

Here's another one from old Beebe.  But now we have motor vehicles.

And another one.

Downtown Beebe Ar

This one shows a thriving corner with a filling station.

Beebe Arkansas is a thriving small town in White County.  If you have not been to the historic downtown of Beebe lately, put it on your schedule.  It is still scenic enough to be a good setting for a movie.  I enjoy driving through downtown and so will you.

Funny, there's a blemish that looks like a stop light in lower center of the first pic.

Stop Light

Those lower 3 pics are circa 1920.

Barbara, I'm not familiar with Beebe is the historic downtown on Main St. near Hwy 367?

Steve, they do, don't they?

Don, when you are coming to Searcy again get off at the Beebe Conway exit, turn right and just drive down that street, Center St., I think it is, til you come to the old town.  It has lots of flea markets, one of them in the depot, and the main street is very scenic.    Wonder what those blemishes in that picture were?  Drones, perhaps?  LOL

This is for those of you who don't do Google Maps, this is a walk through the historic area.

For those of you who want to roll your own, here's the Google Earth view with the address by the old train depot.
