About

The Meredith Home (built in 1931 as Hotel Belleville) stands just south of the fountain on Belleville’s square. It is among the historic buildings and storefronts that contribute distinctive charm to Belleville’s downtown business district.

In March, 2010, a small group of local residents with a passion for preserving Belleville’s rich history decided to form the Belleville Historical Society. Our goal is to acquire artifacts, documents, and real properties significant to the development of city of Belleville and promote an appreciation of its heritage. In essence, we wish to play a role in preserving Belleville’s history for the future.
