Description
Although they are now but a distant memory, natural springs gave the town its current name, derived from the French for “beautiful fountain.” Bellefontaine is a trading center for a rich agricultural region. Nearby 1,550-foot Campbell Hill is the highest point in Ohio.
If you're interested in fun historical facts, be sure to visit the intersection of Court Avenue and Opera Street near the courthouse. In 1891, the street was paved with concrete, making it the country's oldest concrete street. A statue of George Bartholemew, the man responsible for persuading the city council to try this new product, stands at this site.
