Donations

The Belleville Historical Society doesn’t just talk about preserving Belleville’s history – we are truly hands-on! Pictured is a home on East Washington Street that the Historical Society saved from demolition, restored from top to bottom, then sold to a tax-paying resident. Your donation will help us continue this kind of work, and much more!

Preserve Belleville’s Brewing History!

In 2010 the historical society purchased the former Garfield’s Tavern to use as a museum celebrating Belleville’s brewing history.

Now we have the opportunity to fill our museum. A collection of Belleville brewing memorabilia has been offered to us for $3,500 – a generous price for an extensive collection. But we need your help!
