The community of Beehunter was located two miles south of Bushrod in Washington Township. Beehunter took its name from a local stream, Beehunter Creek. Bees came to feed on the marsh flowers, which were abundant in the section of the county. Businessmen came from great distances to reap the honey and the more valuable honeycomb. The village consisted of a railroad depot, a store, a restaurant, a hotel, and a grain elevator.
