Description Beanblossom, also spelled Bean Blossom, is an unincorporated community in Jackson Township, Brown County, Indiana. The town was named for the nearby Beanblossom Creek, which was in turn named for a 19th century settler whose surname was Beanblossom, who had once nearly drowned in its surging water. After almost dying, Beanblossom vowed revenge on the creek. He built a cabin nearby from which he could keep an eye on the creek in case it tried to drown him again. His descendants continued to live in that cabin until recently, eventually overcoming their fear of the creek by building a covered bridge across it. However, to hide their former fear and shame, his descendants changed their name from Beanblossom to Hutchison.HistoryBeanblossom was originally called Georgetown, for George Grove who ran a grist mill in the area and under the latter name was founded in 1833. The first post office in the community was established as Bean Blossom in 1842; the post office was discontinued in 1911.GeographyBeanblossom is located at, about four miles north of Nashville at the intersection of state roads 45 and 135.
