History in a Pecan Shell

Originally named Boyd's Cove, for local resident James Boyd, the town dates from the 1850s. The name Bee Hive was submitted to postal authorities who changed it to Bee House when the post office was granted.

The population of Bee House peaked at 150 in the mid-1890s. The Bee House school had seventy-eight students being taught by two teachers in 1904.
