The US Post Office folks recognized the post office here as “Beaver Lick” (two words) from 1843-1895, and,
from 1895 - 1944, as “Beaverlick” (one word).  Then there's above image which says “Beaver-Lick” (with a dash), and the postmark at the top of this page that just says “Beaver.” 

“The saw-mill of Edward Senour, of Beaver Lick, Boone County, was destroyed by fire last night.  The loss will be about $700.”  Cincinnati Enquirer, September 6, 1883

Beaver Lick Tavern owner gives up his liquor license. Says it's a “disgusting business.”

in the Fall of 1939.

    This map shows the beacon light that was on an early US mail air route, which followed
 a straight line between Louisville and Lunken Airport.  This map is from May, 1944.
The stars denote landing sites - note one at Warsaw, one at Beaver, one in Edgewood, and of
course one at Lunken Field.  The purple highlighting shows the flight path, and the purple elliptical
shape denotes a “Fan Marker Beacon,” i.e., a beacon light, which existed at the place known as Beacon Light.

Beaver had a notable elm tree. The Boone County Recorder says there's a war in Beaver, 1903. . . . and then there was the riot of 1901.

Boone County Recorder travels to Beaver in 1889, here.    

American Society of Equity holds a big rally in Beaver, read it here. If you've not familiar with the A. S. E., you'll want to read this first.

An 1859 Gazetteer lists the merchants of Beaver Lick, here.

“Beaver Lick is one of the most quiet villages on earth, especially on the Sabbath, though two shops are dealing out the deadly drug on week days.  Thanks be to God and honor to the proprietors, not one drop is sold here on Sunday.  We owe it to William Rex Robinson, who came and lectured to us until with tears in their eyes proprietors of liquor promised him they’d vend no more on Sunday.”  from Covington’s Daily Commonwealth, September 16, 1879.
