In 2010, Scott Fulton, a Grove City native who was living in Columbus at the time, dressed in a jockey outfit at Arts in the Alley and began to solicit funds for an Ohio Historical Marker for Beulah Park.
The Southwest Franklin County Historical Society agreed to work with him allowing funds to be held in a special account in the 501c3 non-profit organization.
Fulton was commended in a letter dated April 13, 2011 for his efforts by Don Walters, the business and community relations officer for the city.
The historical society obtained permission to place the marker at Beulah Park on property then owned by Penn National. Jim McKinney, Beulah’s general manager signed an Agreement to place the marker at the thoroughbred racing facility.
When the marker arrived, the Grove City Service Department placed it at a central, highly visible location predetermined location.
After Penn National sold its Beulah Park property, the marker was removed and temporarily located inside the Grove City Welcome Center and Museum. It will eventually be relocated to Beulah Park area as part of the 2020 redevelopment project.
