Wide sidewalks, old-fashioned lamp posts, and charming window displays line the historic Main Street of Belleville, Illinois. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, this quaint city was founded in 1814.
Downtown Belleville is a place for the arts — live music, the top-rated Art on the Square (one of the best fine arts shows in the nation), and theaters mingle with the shops and cafes. During May to October, the Farmer’s Market features fresh produce, meats, crafts, and more.
The Lincoln Theatre, located in historic Downtown, was built in 1921 and is rumored to be haunted. The Kobeloch-Seibert Farm and the Gustave Koerner House (originally built in 1849) are also on the National Register of Historic Places.
Belleville is 16 miles southeast of St. Louis, Missouri and six miles from Scott Air Force Base. It is near Southwestern Illinois College and the St. Louis Downtown Airport. Frank Holten State Park and the Casino Queen are also a short distance away.
