Beulah Villa: Such a beautiful place, if now only in our memories


By Martha Berry

Beulah Villa! What memories that name stirs up.

Dad loved going there to see Mr. Crenshaw and eat the wonderful food. And we always ate on the screened porch.

It has been a long time and memories are sometimes fuzzy but when the writer mentioned the screened room, I knew, at least this time, my memory was correct.

Mr. Crenshaw and my Dad were friends and they loved to talk. After dinner, we children would sit on the porch in the big rocking chairs and enjoy just rockin'. Or go to the swinging bridge.

I'm afraid that I am one of the shakers. Loved the motion of the bridge swinging. Dad also loved the sulphur water and, being the "Daddy's girl" that I was, I had to try it.

I found that it went down easier if I held my nose. Now that's quite a trick. Try it sometime. But once past my nose, the water was cool and refreshing. I don't remember an aftertaste.

How sad that such a beautiful place is here only in our memories. -Martha Berry
