DescriptionLocated in north central Kansas, Belleville was founded in 1869 and named for early resident Anabelle Tutton. A Depression-era building boom, fueled by federal Works Project Administration (WPA) funding, resulted in many fine examples of Art Deco architecture, including the Republic County Courthouse.
A pond that formerly supplied water for Rock Island Railroad steam engines now provides year-round recreation. Rocky Pond Park offers picnicking, fishing, boating (electric motors only) and RV camping.
