Are you looking to buy a home near the base, but looking for a unique community with easy access to both Scott Air Force Base and St. Louis? If that's the case, the “Beautiful City” of Belleville may be the ideal solution.  The word Belleville is French for “Beautiful City”, an accurate description of this fine community.  Whether or not you work at Scott Air Force Base, you'll find this city has an ideal blend of qualities that make it an ideal location to call home.

The architecture reflects a unique mix of cultural influences.  There was a large influx of German residents who built what are called "row houses", which are simple brick cottages.  Other styles came into play later in the form of Victorian, French Second Empire, and other styles.  The historic district is a great place to see many of these styles.

And you won't have any problem finding great places to shop and dine.  The historic downtown area alone has a number of local boutiques and food venues.  The parks system in Belleville also offers a wide range of facilities and trails for your relaxation and exercise needs.
