Bellville Ohio - Put Down Roots
A rich history and bright future come together in Richland County, Ohio. It's a great place to put down roots, literally and metaphorically – the county's name comes from the fertile soil found here – and thanks to the help of the Ohio Genealogical Society, it's a place where many Ohioans can trace their families back through the years and miles. So whether you're interested in learning more about your family's history or planning for its future, our REALTORS® believe Richland County is a great place to do so.

Trace Your History to Bellville, Ohio

The Richland County village of Bellville is an excellent example of this region's unique and fascinating history. Founded in 1808 and the site of a minor gold rush in 1853, it's a tight-knit but welcoming community that offers small-town charm just minutes from the larger city of Mansfield. The Bellville Bandstand, built in 1879, still stands in the heart of the village, and you can trace the path of the B&O Railroad right through Bellville. 

But more important than the history of buildings and artifacts is the history of people, and that's something that the Bellville-based Ohio Genealogical Society has been helping shed more light on for years. This non-profit library spans a vast collection of more than 60,000 volumes – family histories, Bible records, cemetery listings and much more – and has helped countless people learn more about their families' history. 

The Ohio Genealogical Society Library is located in Bellville, but its reach extends far beyond this community, encompassing records from all of Ohio's 88 counties and many other U.S. states. Most of these resources are fully available to the general public, so if you're ready to start tracing the roots of your family, this is the place to do it. 

Putting Down Roots in Richland County

As much as we enjoy digging into Bellville's past, it's important to keep in mind that we have a present to live in and a future to look toward to. Even if you're inclined to go digging around for your family's roots, Richland County is also a great place to put down some roots of your own. 

With affordable homes, great schools and dozens of quaint downtown districts, the cities and towns of Richland County offer endless possibilities. When you visit Bellville, be sure to grab coffee at Brumby's, sit down for lunch at Wishmaker House Bed & Breakfast, and don't neglect to enjoy dessert at Dairy Belle. If you're headed to Mansfield, the county's largest city, you'll find a cozy but vibrant downtown packed with shops, boutiques, cafes and eateries of every kind.

There's year-round fun to be had as well, from the annual Bicycle Days in Shelby to the Lexington Blueberry Festival. You'll find classic theaters to frequent, hiking trails to explore, museums to browse and so much more.
