BC: "The early days of Beulah. Picture taken sometime between 1914 and 1918. This is Main Street facing east. The Beulah Power Plant would be built in years to come on the east end of Main Street, where a coal mine was located. The flag flying is over Beulah Post Office. The picture below was blown up from a small snapshot found in material given to Lawrence J. Joos from Mrs. Oscar Johnson. She taught rural school for many years. Thanks to Mrs. Johnson this picture of Beulah is now a part of Beulah's past history." by Lawrence J. Joos
