WCSX City of the Week

Congratulations to Belleville,

You’re the WCSX City of the Week

Belleville factoids:

  • The Belleville National Strawberry Festival kicks off Friday, June 14th and runs through the weekend! It began as a way for local farmers to celebrate their strawberry crops.
  • The community was named in honor of landowner James Bell… the name is also the French word for “beautiful town.”
  • In the 1930s, 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.
