Historic Walking Tour

Historic Walking Tour

Bellefontaine believes in preserving our city’s rich history and sharing it with others. Here, the story of our small town is displayed through our proud, historic structures. Spanning architectural styles from the 1850s through brand new construction, our buildings tell the tales of our people, our dedication to growth, and our vision for the future.

As you walk through our downtown, look for the bronze plaques displayed on the building fronts. They’ll introduce you to a small piece of Bellefontaine’s history, while you meet our amazing present-day merchants and learn to love the most lovable town in the state!
