“The town of Beatrice was founded in 1857 by a group of pioneers from St. Louis who traveled on the steamer "Hannibal" up the Missouri River to the new territory of Nebraska. During their stay aboard the steamer they organized an association and selected a committee to: “Explore Nebraska for the purpose of selecting a town site." This committee left the boat at Nebraska City, divided themselves into two groups and set out to find a suitable location for the town site. One group proceeded directly west from Nebraska City. The other group traveled in a southwesterly direction and made camp one night on the banks of Indian Creek at its junction with the Big Blue River. This site was selected and the first building built, known as Pap Towle's cabin which is where the Gage County Museum was later built. The town's name is pronounced Be-a-trice instead of the common pronunciation.
Beatrice's Downtown Business District features the Gage County Bank which was built in 1874 of native limestone. Located at the corner of 6th and Court is the Paddock Kensington. It was formally the Paddock Hotel, which was rebuilt after the original Paddock Hotel burned..
The DeRoin Trail ran from Brownville near the town of St. DeRoin to Beatrice and on to meet the Oregon Trail near Alexandria. It followed the old Otoe-Omaha Indian Trail and was also know as the Brownville or Government Road. Originally the trail joined the Austin Trail near the present site of Pickrell and continued west. In the 1850's, when Beatrice was able to sell travelers their supplies, the trail dropped further south and followed what later became Court Street. They crossed the Big Blue River just south of the Court Street Bridge on the rock bottom ford known as the Scott Street ford
