In the 1800s, you would have found Beebe, Arkansas to be a bustling railroad town. It was vibrant and full of people traveling on to other places. One of Beebe's first settlers, a wealthy surveyor named Jim Smith, established the first post office in town and owned most of the land in Beebe. If you take your dog for a walk down the Main Street, you will see one of the original buildings he erected, which still bears his initials.
Before the tornado of '99, you would have found thick strawberry patches that were tended and shipped out of state. Modern-day Beebe, though, is a land of learning. It houses long-distance learning facilities as well as many trade schools. Ever evolving, Beebe is a must-see destination in the heart of Arkansas.
Come and take a walk through Daniel Park. This lovely park is the home of the Master Gardners Association. Along the paths, you will find displays of flowers that include a butterfly garden. There are also seasonal decorations to enjoy. Please stay on the paths and clean up after your pet. There is a designated pet area with doggie waste bags. Beebe City Park is another large park with several ball fields. There are playgrounds, pavilions, and a walking path.
History-loving hounds will fall head over paws for Beebe!
