"Beeville, My Home Town" beetex's Profile

Brush Country

Beeville lies on the coastal plains of South Texas in the South Texas Brush Country. About 15,000 souls call Beeville their home town. It's a quiet peaceful place surrounded by miles and miles of grass and trees and brush. But there's a lot to look at especially if you like open plains and birds and brush. Here's a old barn just north of Beeville with a Red Tailed Hawk flying overhead.

Cattle Country

Beevile was founded in 1858 and was known then as a stockman's paradise for the lush grass that surrounded it. It's still a center of the cattle raising industy today. Although the cattle raised in Bee County today are mostly of the Hereford variety, it was the Longhorn Cow that made Texas famous and there were many of them in the herds of early settlers.

Windmilll City

In the early years of the 20th century, Beeville was known through all of South Texas as the "windmill city" as there was one in nearly every yard. The windmills are gone from town now, but there are still plenty of windmills in the surrounding countryside.

Western Heritage

We're proud of our early cowboy history and we celebrate it every fall with Western Week, which of course, includes a parade. Here the United States flag and the flag of the state of Texas are proundly carried through the streets of Beeville.

Bird Sanctuary

Beeville has declared itself to be a bird sanctuary city where it is unlawful to harm any birds found in the city limit. There are lots of birds in Beeville including this robin who stopped to refresh himself in my back yard bird bath.

The Flowers are Wild

Several hundred varieties of wildflowers bloom around Beeville and Bee County at all times of the year. In the spring the ground almost seems to be painted with flowers. Here, a colt is nibbling the grass in the midst of a field of Indian Paintbrushes.
