Beulah Cemetery

The Beulah Cemetery was originally located east of Gravel Pit Road and was associated with the Beulah Presbyterian Church, which existed in the early 1800's. This cemetery was moved from its original location to Springlawn Cemetery in New Paris, Ohio. A memorial was erected to remember these early settlers.
