From the agrarian roots of the 1890's 2,200 Beecherites share
a unique lifestyle steeped in family values, pride in community
and spiritual fellowship. This lifestyle is reflected everyday
as people pick-up their mail from the central post office, school
children are escorted across streets by Village Police, and
through Sunday attendance at one of eight churches located in
the Beecher area.
Away from the surrounding busy metropolitan areas where most people
work, Beecher retains a quaint atmosphere of a rural hamlet proud of
its small town country living. This pride shows throughout the
Village along quiet residential streets lined with well-maintained
historic homes. Residents stroll on sidewalks along tree lined
streets each evening, while others walk downtown to the post office,
participate in social activities housed in the Community Center
and sports programs located at Fireman's Park, or visit with
neighbors at one of the two ice cream parlors.
Beecher is poised for future growth as more people seek the
respite of small community living to offset the fast pace of the
modern day work world. Responsive government assisted by concerned
citizens serving on voluntary commissions and boards seek to retain
the characteristics of Beecher through restoration of the Downtown
to the 1905 era and creation of Village appearance standards for
While growth will change the number of people living in the
community, Beecher's proud past remains the guide for the future.
