Beeville was a small town, now extinct, in Lauramie Township, near the southern border of Tippecanoe County in the U.S. state of Indiana.[1]

History[edit]

Beeville was platted in 1884 along the Toledo, St. Louis and Western Railroad and consisted of at least 10 lots.[2] Though it gained some inhabitants, the town never saw much growth, and little to no trace of it remains today.
