Belleville - CSX City of the Week

Congratulations to Belleville,

You're the WCSX City of the Week!

Belleville Factoids:

  •  The community was named in honor of landowner James Bell... the name is also the French word for "beautiful town."
  •  In the 1930's, Belleville had a reputation as a resort community where the wealthy of Detroit maintained getaway estates. Henry Ford and Charles Lindbergh once owned summer cottages on Belleville Lake in the neighborhood of Harmony Lane.
  • The National Strawberry Festival takes place the third weekend in June every year in Belleville.  It began as a way for local farmers to celebrate their strawberry crops.
