I was giving a tour by Google Maps and I've found a very small city called Beulah. When I searched for it in Wikipedia, I've found it has only 447 inhabitants!
And you? Have you already ever heard talk about this small city?
I'm brazilian and I'm writing a history that pass itself in a small city. I've found Beulah and it's just perfect for what I was looking for.
I just love places like this and I would like to know how would be the life in Beulah.
Can you help me?
Hugs.

I also saw another post you made, and I'm curious as to your goal. Maybe knowing what you're trying to accomplish would help get you more answers. When you say "history", I originally assumed you were talking about writing about things that actually happened in that location. That you would do research by looking up old newspaper articles and court documents, interview locals, etc. To be honest it seemed rather odd to just pick a random small town and write a history about it.

But now I think you're talking about something like a "historical novel", or a work of fiction that is set in a real location and maybe featuring real people. This is more manageable.

It's exactly what I'm trying to do. I want to be a writer and I have many plans to my works. This one is a novel, fictional, about people in a small city of Mississipi listening to blues. \o/
Forgive me if I've made confusing the meaning of my posts using the word "history" : )
I hope you can help me with my goal.
Thanks.

Edit:
I've just found out why you was confusing about my post. I've used "history" instead of "story". In Portuguese, I can use the same word to the both meaning, but in English I can't. I'm sorry : D
