Geocache Description:

This is Featured Cache #17 of the Greater Johnstown/Cambria County Geotrail, which highlights the scenic and historic amenities of the area. Be sure to collect and record the Geotrail Code Word from in (or near, in the case of micros) the cache to your official Geotrail Passport, which can be obtained from the Convention and Visitor’s Bureau. A map and list of all caches featured in the Geotrail can be found at Map Link or they can be bulk downloaded from the bookmark list.

Beulah Road is all that is left to tell of the town of Beulah, laid out in 1796 by Rev. Morgan John Rhys, on land purchased from Benjamin Rush of Philadelphia. The plan was quite ambitious; the right-angled streets were copied after Philadelphia. This was to become a great city in the land of Jordan. It did prosper for a time. At length there were sixty log houses on the site, as well as a school, a church, and a library of six hundred volumes. But when Cambria County was formed Ebensburg became the county seat, and Beulah lost its population. By 1808 all had left. Ebensburg grew slowly until the completion of the Portage Railroad, when it became a popular summer resort.

This is a easy two stage multi cache that does not require much travel. At Stage 1 you will find a green sign about the town of "Beula".(Did they mispell the sign?) will use the information to complete the coordinates below. The second stage is the final. It is a micro container attached to a small host. The host was found right at ground zero! I was averaging coords and looked over to see it laying on the ground. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do not take the host. It deserves to stay where it's lasted all these years. Who knows how old it is!?
