Beulah

-A A +A

Beulah (1873, 6,200 feet) is a small town and summer resort in a secluded valley with the Beulah Marble Quarry at the west end. Beulah red marble, known for its striking color and swirling patterns, was used for the wain-scoting of the Colorado State Capitol in Denver. Prominent Pueblo families built summer homes in Beulah, notably along Pine Drive. Pueblo Mountain Park (1920), a 600-acre park owned by the City of Pueblo, has various CCC and WPA facilities. Cascade Trail was laid out by landscape architect Frank H. Culley. Structures include the rustic Pueblo Community House, of massive local stones; the Pueblo Revival Horseshoe Lodge; a summer camp; and a rustic picnic pavilion. The 3-R Ranch, once owned by Pueblo business magnate James N. Carlile, is a working cattle operation with a rustic ranch house and a barn with stone corrals. The KK Ranch, Bed and Breakfast, and Carriage Museum (1871), 8987 Mountain Park Road, is a 67-acre spread incorporating renovated rough-cut lumber ranch structures and fifteen restored antique carriages and sleighs.
