According to the University of West Florida Historic Trust, the origin of the name for the Beulah community comes from an unknown author:
“On July 23, 1880 residents held a meeting in the center of the community with intentions to choose a name and found a village. After long and careful deliberation and because they were God loving people, they chose the name Beulah which is found in the Bible and added Springs, for the springs that were in existence at the time close to the Baptist Church. Beulah Springs, Florida came into existence. The small post office was close to the church on what is now Beulah Church Road.”
The Escambia County Equestrian Center is located in the Beulah area.
While this once-sleepy community on high, rolling land in west central Escambia County still has its bucolic charms, no one who lives in Beulah doubts massive change is coming — and soon.
Driving this change is Navy Federal, the Virginia-based credit union and the expansion of its Heritage Oaks campus. By 2020, the Virginia-based company will have in place a $1 billion campus in Beulah employing some 10,000 people.
What does all this mean for Beulah?
Obviously growth and change. And lots of it for decades to come.
