BEULAH, TEXAS (Limestone County). Beulah is five miles southwest of Groesbeck in south central Limestone County. In 1896 it was a common school district with fifty-five students. The school and several houses marked the community on county highway maps in the 1940s, but in 1949 the Beulah school was divided between the Groesbeck and Thornton independent school districts. Little remained in the community by the 1980s. The community was listed, though without statistics, in 1990. In 2000 the population was twelve.
