History in a Pecan Shell

Ira Bean was one of the town's first settlers. He became the town's first postmaster when one was granted in 1904 - and was opened in his store. The community had originally been named Horger after John Horger, president of a college at nearby
Newton.

The population was a mere 20 persons in 1914. Since Horger's mail was frequently confused with Borger's mail - a new office was opened and named Bean's Place in 1925 while the Horger post office stayed open until 1929.
