Beech Grove, Indiana: Nestled on the outskirts of Indianapolis, it was incorporated around 1906. Beech Grove, Indiana supposedly gets its name to the abundance of Beech Trees in the area. The actual city came into existence as a company town for a new
railroad repair facility, the Beech Grove Shops, constructed by the Cleveland, Cincinnati, Chicago, and St. Louis Railroad (nicknamed the "Big Four").
Two famous actors have listed Beech Grove as their birthplace, Clifton Webb and Steve McQueen. Webb was born before Beech Grove came into existence as a separate entity,
while McQueen was born at the City's St. Francis Hospital.
