The H.R. Beebe Construction Company was organized in 1912 and incorporated in 1924; thus making the firm one of the oldest general contractors in Central NY. At that time the founder, Henry R. Beebe, had already proven himself as an experienced contractor and business man. He had engineered and built several major construction projects throughout New York State. H.R. Beebe, Inc. soon became known for its honesty, integrity, and quality in the construction industry.

After Mr. Beebe's retirement in 1936, E.H. Stetson was appointed corporate president. Stetson, a long time associate of Mr. Beebe, maintained the companies fine reputation of quality work for the next twelve years until his death in 1945. Succeeding Stetson, Philip K. Miller headed H.R. Beebe Inc. and was instrumental in the growth of the corporation. Mr Miller, who has been with the company since 1924, became known as a leader among area contractors, often being consulted when tough construction problems needed solving. Many of the companies largest and most complex jobs were engineered and supervised by Mr. Miller. Even after his retirement in 1974, P.K. Miller had maintained semi-active with H.R.
