Beaman is the only town in Bowling Green township. It is a small village, located on the main line of the Missouri, Kansas and Texas railway and is an excellent shipping point. It has railway and rock road connection with Sedalia. While a good agricultural country surrounds it, Sedalia is too close to it to permit of much growth. Its business men are few, still they are wide awake and are successful, and for the number of inhabitants, the volume of business done here compares favorably with any other village in the county. The following gentlemen represent the business interests there: L. B. Stuart, L. L. Stuart, G. W. Cathey and B. Houchin.
