Welcome to Bellville, Ohio!

Bellville is dissected by SR13, SR97, and I-71 in the beautiful rolling hills of southern Richland County. Bellville is about halfway between Cleveland and Columbus. The Clear Fork Creek meanders through our village, as does the B&O Bike Trail.

Our 1878 Bandstand; the special architectural features of our downtown buildings; the streetscape on Main Street; unique shopping, dining, and lodging opportunities downtown; and being just off I-71 make for a wonderful visit and a great place to live. Combining the above features with the Clear Fork Creek and the B&O Bike Trail, Bellville has a “Norman Rockwell” feel to it. Please explore our website; we are sure the more you know about Bellville the sooner you will come visit our lovely Village.

Bellville’s quality of life for its residents and visitors alike is greatly enhanced by the many recreation possibilities in this immediate area. Bellville is also the gateway to the Mohican Recreational Area and to Ohio’s largest Amish Community.

Our greatest asset is our citizens. Hospitality is alive and well in the Village of Bellville. Please come visit our great community.
